Exploring The Santa Fe Area

We have been here a week already and time seems to be going by so fast.  Our first couple of days were spent in "RV repair" mode.  The outside water faucet located in our wet bay started to leak and had to be replaced.  To complicate the situation, Ronnie needed to remove the bay door and the fiberglass panel to get behind the faucet to remove it's water connections.  Thankfully he was able to fix it. 

We took a drive through the Santa Fe National Forest, near the Bandelier National Monument.

You could see evidence of the wildfire in 2011.

Our first visit to Santa Fe included a drive up to Hyde Park.

The aspen have just started to bud.

We found a forest service road to explore.

We enjoyed our drive through the city of Santa Fe too. Our first stop had to be the Palace of the Governors and the see the Native American artists selling their work.

We enjoyed a cool drink at the Draft Station.  Their roof top patio offered a great view of the center square area.

We ended the day with a delicious dinner at La Choza..

We've driven out to the small towns of Abiquiu, Cebolla and the Red Rocks area.  The landscape out there is known as the Georgia O'Keeffe area.
More later.

  1. Well, at least you got to enjoy Santa Fe more while waiting for the repairs to finish. Hopefully that’s the last you’ll hear of that problem for quite some time. Anyway, those pictures of Hyde Park look stunning! It must be nice to be greeted in the morning by such a wonderful view! Thanks for sharing your RV experience with us! Good day!
