New Mexico

Shayne's and Keith's Home, Rio Rancho, NM

After staying overnight and visiting with Shayne, Keith and family in Rio Rancho, we drove to Santa Fe this morning.

We were scheduled to meet up with one of Larry's clients, artist Dennis Larkins and his wife, Debra. They have a really nice condo in Santa Fe that also houses Dennis' studio.

We saw some of Dennis' faboo current artwork, then followed them to downtown Santa Fe. They gave us a mini-tour of the plaza. It's a really wonderful area filled with historical buildings, shops, art galleries, restaurants and more. We had a delicious Southwestern lunch and then roamed around the area a bit more.

After saying goodbye to Dennis and Debra we drove to the Museum of International Folk Art. Wow! What a great little museum! Very inspirational.

Museum Gift Shops are the Best!

We arrived in Taos around 5:30 tonight and settled into our motel, Indian Hills Inn. We had a delicious dinner at Doc Martin's which is part of the Old Taos Inn.
We spied the white tents at Kit Carson Park for tomorrow's Taos Wool Festival. I can't wait to meet up with my Ravelry friends at the Festival and tour the grounds! Good night and have a great weekend! I know we will!

This sounds like a great road trip so far! I made a very similar "southwest tour" by car quite a few years back, but my car at the time had no air conditioning, and we traveled in mid-summer!

Sounds like you are having a great vacation and it is so fun to meet up with friends. I love Santa Fe. I have only been once but loved it. I love following you on your tour!

Man, I hope you get a chance to go to the Georgia O'Keefe Museum on the way back through Santa Fe. It is amazing.

That craft museum looks mighty interesting.

Enjoy Taos! It's a cool town.
