More Santa Fe photos

There are a lot of churches in this town…no surprise, since Santa Fe was founded by missionaries.

Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi


Loretto Chapel


San Miguel mission, the oldest church building in the United States, built in 1610.


And, here is that crick they call the Santa Fe River.


Photos from Santa Fe

A photo dump from today. The weather is beautiful, warm but not hot,and always a breeze blowing. Thanks to thunderstorms last week, the Santa Fe River has water running in it; we wouldn’t call it a river at home, though, as Topey and Antoine creeks both have more water. This stream my granddaddy would probably call a “branch”. There are several museums, dozens of high end art galleries, a wide variety of restaurants, as well as tourist-y places. I am thoroughly enjoying both the conference and this unique town.

They have a beautiful Scottish Rite Temple here in Santa Fe. I was disappointed to see a “For Sale” sign in front of it.


The “skyline” of Santa Fe, with a thunderstorm building in the Sangre de Cristos.


Native American art market…a lot of jewelry, of course, but also some really amazing pottery.


KAW-LIGA was a wooden Indian standing by the door
He fell in love with an Indian maid over in the antique store…

Even the First Presbyterian Church looks authentic…although it kinda reminds me of the Taco Bell logo.


I thought I might have seen these two, but I could be mistaken…


Blogging from Santa Fe

I am here for an educational conference (Wilderness Medicine), so I am not sure how much blogging will get done. I will try to keep everyone up to date.

Downtown is very Southwestern (duh), and pretty touristy. Pretty artsy also. This is Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi…


This is the view from the hotel balcony…


Lots of chiles…
