The overpasses were more decorative than ours in Colorado.
Lots of Native American labels. Much easier to read things in Spanish!
First stop was Taos where we spent the first night.
Then on to Santa Fe.
I enjoyed the flowers in these high desert areas.
Artists' plaques on the sidewalk.Many displays on the sidewalk outside the Palace of the Governors. The spaces are drawn lottery style each morning and the vendors are not assured a spot. The artist must place her/his name on a waiting list if a number is not drawn. All of the work that is sold on this side of the square is of high quality and workmanship is guaranteed.
Adobe style buildings.
On the way home we stopped in Pagosa Springs and soaked in the mineral pools. Then drove and drove to get to the Sand Dunes.
An AMAZING place!! Click on the pictures to enlarge. Loaded the wrong size picture.
We walked in the sandy stream for a while and just marveled at our surroundings. Earlier in the year the water is much deeper and swifter. To see the people that are walking way over on the sand dunes you can click on the picture to enlarge it.
This was the first trip I've taken in many years. I'm glad to be back home, safe and sound, and ready to celebrate the 4th of July and "Grampa's" birthday! #88, I think!
