Santa Fe, NM

We are now in Santa Fe and will be here a week. Suggestions on what to see and where to go while we are here. Any day-trip suggestions? We are not able to do much hiking but can otherwise get around to see the sights. Thanks

Bandelier National Monument, without a doubt.
Taos if you want to take a drive north (about an hour or so).
Beautiful beautiful beautiful country up there :-)

We have been thinking about Bandelier National Monument. And we are going to Taos after Santa Fe. Thanks.

Kasha-Katawe Tent Rocks National Monument is very unique. It's by Cochiti Lake.

Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument

Take a drive up to the Santa Fe ski area. It might be a little early but you could catch some fall color.

Take a drive south on Hwy 14 and you can get to the back side of Sandia Peak - possibly more fall color.

Many good places to eat in Santa Fe and the Hatch chilis might still be roasting on the street corners - a wonderful smell!

Ron, when you get to the Taos/Enchanted Circle area be sure to rent a Jeep in Red River to enjoy the scenery. There are several Jeep rental agencies that will be happy to show you trails, roads, and areas of interest that will fit your spirit of adventure within your off road skill set and comfort level. Have fun!

Los Alamos national lab. We drove there from Santa Fe. They have a visitors center/museum there that is packed full of all kinds of fascinating stuff. I'm gonna go back because there was more than I could take in in one afternoon

Northwest from Santa Fe is Lake Abiquiu, the area where the artist Georgia O'Keeffe lived and painted for many years. The countryside around there is easily recognizable if you've seen any of her landscapes.

If you're an art fan, Santa Fe is the largest art market outside of New York in the US. Park at the west end of Canyon Road and start walking. There are more galleries than you can imagine. Another cluster is downtown, and another at the new railyard area. Even if you don't think you're an art fan, a day spent on Canyon Road may well change your mind. And the food in Santa Fe is amazing.

We go to Santa Fe about once a year, and split the time between country hikes and art gallery hikes. Always something different and striking to see. Over the years we have purchased some really beautiful paintings there.

Here's an example. This is a large painting, about 5 feet by 7 feet in its frame. No place for it in the coach, unfortunately.

Yesterday morning we went to The Railyard to the farmers market and visited some of the shops there. Yesterday afternoon we went to the Wicked 5K run to visit with friends, then dinner in Madrid at The Hollar. Today downtown to The Plaza and O'Keeffe Museum and just walking around in the downtown area. Monday maybe Los Alamos.

Here is a picture of our rig the day before we got to Santa Fe.

Yesterday, Bandelier National Monument and Los Alamos. Today downtown to O"Keeffe Museum and The Plaza.

Any more suggestions? We leave for Taos Thursday. Thanks
