The Stories We Could Tell

Do you know the way to Santa Fe?

Santa Fe was our longest stop yet – 5 nights! There is so much to do there we couldn’t resist. And, we were ready to do some old fashioned relaxing too!

Santa Fe has a big farmer’s/artist market which was great for a few fresh produce items and some excellent people watching (plus hippy volunteers to watch your dog while you shop). The downtown area was fun – art galleries, restaurants, historic buildings. We toured the San Miguel Mission – the oldest church in the US still in use (pictured below).

Just outside Santa Fe, is El Santuario de Chimayó, another old adobe church. The dirt that the church sits on is supposed to have miraculous healing properties – as evidenced by crutches, braces, and testimonials left behind by those were healed. Unfortunately, no photos were allowed inside the church, but there were easily 30 pairs of crutches. No miracles were witnessed during our visit, however :). El Santuario sits on a river so the surroundings are magnificent. Hopefully our photos will do it justice!

Of course, we also hit up some breweries… three to be exact! The Santa Fe Brewing Company was pretty much locals only, so it was fun to not feel like a tourist for the moment. Also, Blue Corn Cafe/Brewery and Second Street Brewery. Lots of good beer. Lots of spicy food. Mmmm beer.
