Santa Fe New Mexico

For about eight months we were living and working in Albuquerque New Mexico, and decided we needed to visit as many attractions as possible while we were there. New Mexico is known as The Land of Enchantment.

This photo was taken while visiting Santa Fe New Mexico. The art and sculpture displayed was unbelievable. These artists are incredibly talented.

The town sqaure was filled with vendors selling just about everything, but the indians selling hand made jewlery were facinating. Definately true artists at work.

Santa Fe is full of history, heritage, arts and culture. It's nestled in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the foothills of the Rockies, and has an average of 325 days of sunshine and blue sky.

During this trip we also stopped at the Bobcat Bite. It was featured on the Travel Channel. It's located on Old Las Vegas Highway which at one time was part of historic Route 66. The Bobcat Bite is a family owned and operated restaurant and has been there since 1953.

It started out as trading post, then a gun shop, and eventually was made into a mom and pop diner which was named after the bobcats that came down from the hills to their backdoor for treats.

It's a simple and rustic place serving large portions of their own daily fresh ground beef and steaks. It's small so you may have to wait for a seat, but it's worth the wait.

We also visited Taos, but didn't like it nearly as much. The Albuquerque Balloon Rally was delayed and due to that only a few balloon lifted off the year we were there. The Fourth of July celebration was fantastic though. We were parked on a hill and could look down on the valley and watch 17 different displays all going on at the same time.

One of the best things about living in an RV is that you can visit so many different places and stay long enough to really experience them.
