Jamie and I recently took a trip down to the SW, wandering around New Mexico with no real agenda. What an incredible area. So expansive with its desert hills and cactuses (cactai?) and tumbleweed, with all the architecture the ubiquitous color of sand–but in the midst of all that you find these unexpected treasures that remind you how amazingly diverse this country is. We visited Santa Fe with its endless art galleries and St Francis of Assisi Cathedral, the Roswell UFO museum (I’ve gotta say, I’m a believer!), the Carlsbad Caverns, White Sands National Monument, plus a few other stops along the way.
Loved this trip, but was happy to come back home to the lush greenery of Seattle.
