April 8-9…Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico  350 miles

We spent a day exploring Santa Fe, New Mexico which is about 50 miles from Albuquerque.  All the buildings are of the pueblo style.  The downtown square is pretty much a tourist place with a cathedral at it’s center.  The best place, however, was a little square that was not visible from the street.  Doug and I spent a nice part of the afternoon having coffee in that square waiting for a shop keeper to comeback so I could see her artisan scarves and woven wares. She came back about 5 pm…closing time…apparently not uncommon in New Mexico!
