Santa Fe Saturday
We enjoyed our first morning hour on a scenic run through Sedona's Main Street area, and then spent the day traveling from Sedona to Santa Fe. Super enjoyable drive…very different than life back home. We saw snowcapped mountains and beautiful plateaus; trains traveling at high speeds across the flat land; many long-distance truckers, and a variety of casinos along the interstate. We are happy to be here in Santa Fe, the capital city of New Mexico, the oldest city that is a state capital in the country (founded by Spanish colonists in 1610), and the oldest city in the state. Their architecture is Adobe-colored stucco with rounded corners; definitely a Spanish influence. Native Americans dominate the scene, living and working in New Mexico. We drove by the exit for the continental divide and had a spirited conversation about geography...we were in too big of a hurry to get to our Santa Fe bungalow to stop!
