Santa Fe All the Way!

After shooting Christina & Jason's Destination Wedding in Denver, Emir and I hopped over to Santa Fe to explore for a couple of days. Neither of us had been there before and I've always been curious about the city known for it's art and culture.... so why not? We booked our hotel online (Hotel St. Francis) without too much thought and were thrilled with our choice. We were on the 3rd floor, this was the staircase.... santa_fe_03santa_fe_01

This was our room! (Love the white, fluffy bed!)


The next day we were thrilled to meet up with Peachpit's famed author, Robin Williams and her partner-in-crime, John.We rendezvoused at the well-known dining establishment, Harry's Roadhouse on Old Las Vegas Hwy. Too cool!


Collectively, Robin & John have been in the Santa Fe area for 40+ years... so they had all kinds of suggestions about where we should go and what we should do. One of the things they mentioned was making a trip south of Santa Fe to Madrid (pronounced Mahhhhh-drid) with a quick stop at Cerillos to visit the petting zoo and this curious little shop.... I shot Emir, and he shot the image on the right.


They sold all kinds of interesting things, including old checks from the 1800's....


$5 'Rock Concerts'


and porcupine quills, because you *never* know when you might need some of those!



We continued on to Madrid where we found even more color, yummy, and curious things!


Along the way, we found heaven!


Headed back north back to Santa Fe, I was struck at the scenery. I *love* this image.


When we got back to the hotel, we discovered this little treasure and Emir shot this image. You can't help but smile when you look at this, right?


Wandering around on a quest for yet *more* caloric intake.... we landed at Luminaria. It was as delicious as it was beautiful!


In Santa Fe, even the bathrooms are photo worthy!


Our hotel was so bright and airy, the elevator was no exception!


On our way home soon to continue the wedding photo fun with Tara + Chris & Kim + Bob!
