Santa Fe, New Mexico - a national treasure

Santa Fe is not a national park, but it is a national treasure and a very fun place. We decided to take a break from tent camping and enjoy sleeping in a real bed. Santa Fe is filled with a diverse culture and history, is home to many famous artists, and is a culinary playground. What is there not to like! 

Laura asked me if I'd take a glass blowing class with her.  When I said yes, I had to help her off the floor. We went to Liquid Light Glass studio. They were listed by US News Travel as one of the top things to do in Santa Fe. We had so much fun; it was a wonderful experience.  We made four glasses and a paperweight, not bad for our first time.

We visited a shop called Kitchenality. They resell used kitchen goods and cookbooks with all proceeds benefiting Kitchen Angels, a local charity which helps feed home bound folks in Santa Fe. It was cool to see an idea like this working!

Georgia O'Keefe spent many years close to Santa Fe; we visited her museum here. She was an amazingly talented artist and a pioneer in American art. Her works were spectacular. If you're not familiar with her, follow this link.

The culinary scene in Santa Fe is incredible. It has so many different world class restaurants. In our pursuit of eating local, we found the "Best of Santa Fe 2016: Readers Choice" which is sponsored by the local paper We tried multiple places including the best margaritas, and they all were winners!!!
