Santa Fe Weekend

September 13, 2009

Santa Fe Hotel

After looking at apartments for a few days, Chris & I decided to take off and head up to Santa Fe for two nights. While we left ABQ later in the afternoon, the drive was quick and we found a cheap room outside the main plaza area pretty easily.

We spent our first full day touring around looking at souvenirs and all the art & jewelry that was being sold at the Palace of the Governors. Happy hour started fairly early for us as we tested our share of margaritas and watched all the activity in the plaza.

Before heading back to Albuquerque on Sunday we went to Bandelier National Monument to explore the ancient caves left in the side of the Frijoles Canyon. We climbed the 140 ft up to the Alcove House, trailing behind two very young children who flew up the ladders fearlessly.
