Santa Fe Christmas

We hope everyone had a safe and festive New Year!   I am still chronicling our recent New Mexico holiday.


We started our trek into New Mexico on some deserted snowy roads on the scenic route.

NM 104 between Tucumcari and Las Vegas.

We visited two brewpubs:  Duel and Santa Fe Brewing.

On Christmas Eve we walked Canyon Road in Santa Fe along with 20,000 other people, definitely not the road less traveled but full of eccentrics and revelers.

There was still art to be viewed.

But after the spirited revelry, there was a silent night.

So, dear readers, there is at least one more post about our holiday in New Mexico…(I know, I keep saying that.)
