Santa Fe, New Mexico: Another beautiful day in Santa Fe. We jogged on the 3/4-mile trail that meanders around the RV park. I was really having a hard time jogging on the hilly trail this morning. I ended up walking.... guess going from sea level to 7000 feet in elevation needs a bit of adjustment? Or, I could be old.
The four photos below were snapped with my phone during my exercise. There are about 30 pieces of antique farm equipment on display at the campground. On my route today I saw a blue bird, several rabbits, many lizards and a few massive black beetles.
A great meal and we had deja vu all over again. We were seated today at the same table as our 2002 visit (and the same place I sat when I visited with my girlfriend in 1997. Obviously, this is "my" table. On our 2002 visit, Dave and I chatted with a lovely couple from Arkansas seated at the next table (approximately 2-inches away from our table). Today we chatted with a lovely couple from Louisiana, cruising Historic Route 66 in a brand new Corvette. How fun! Lensic Performing Arts Center, Santa Fe
Next on the tourist agenda? A stop at Jackalope of course. I can't exactly describe this shop - or series of buildings and outdoor spaces that combine to create a massive emporium of all sorts of things you probably do not need, but buy anyway. Old, new and reproduction furniture, household items, clothing, garden features, a plant nursery, a Prairie Dog community, toys, art, architectural elements and probably anything else you could probably think of adding to a home.Santa Fe Brewing Company. DT had a Happy Camper IPA, which he enjoyed on the upper deck of the brewery. I volunteered to be the designated driver. You will not be surprised to learn, after our large late lunch, there is no dinner for us tonight.
Pedometer: Nearly 13,000 steps. All of them at 7000 feet elevation.
