We drove into Santa Fe Monday night and have spent two amazing days exploring the city and it's incredible surroundings so rich in history and culture. Santa Fe is celebrating it's 400th year this year and if folks have been hanging out here since 1610 then by golly it's worth more than a passing visit. If I could, I would have stayed a week. There is so much to see and so much to show you of our trip, I have had to divide it into two posts. I hope you don't mind.
We spent the first day wandering in the Plaza at the center of the old part of town which is graced with ancient adobe dwellings and the beautiful St. Francis Basilica, built in the 1600's and rebuilt in the 1800's.
We strolled down the row of Navajo vendors selling their gorgeous handmade turqoise jewelry and woven rugs.
