We crossed the state line on Wednesday and cheered, "We're here!" This was a horribly windy drive. Stayed at a nice KOA in Albuquerque and went to the grocery store and did laundry.
Next day, we drove up the "Turquoise Trail" to Santa Fe - the drive up Sandia Peak was fun and beautiful, but by the time we got to the top at 10,500 ft, Anne was suffering from the altitude. Tom got a few pictures by climbing up a snowy set of steps. We went back down and continued north - depressed-looking area and not much open. The coal mining museum was closed. So we were disappointed and arrived at our campground outside of Santa Fe. Tom took a hike around the campground and was winded after the mile.
Friday has been spectacular. We drove into Santa Fe and toured the "miraculous" Loretto Chapel, the Palace of the Governors (aka Museum of New Mexico), bought some wonderful inlay jewelry from a man on the Plaza from Santo Domingo Pueblo, ate lunch at the French Pastry Shop, and toured the Georgia O'Keefe Museum. That museum was amazing - we both loved it! But the Santa Fe Railroad Depot was a regular modern RR station, so Tom, expecting historic trains, was disappointed there. Back at the RV we were still full from lunch, so we had a great dinner of shrimp cocktail prepared by Tom.
