Where I stayed
Wednesday, May 6, 2009 -- Greetings From Marvelous Santa Fe, NM
We weren't able to get online last night, so I'm writing this before we get started today. We made it into Santa Fe late Tuesday afternoon. We left Elk City, OK in the morning with dense fog, light rain and temperatures in the upper 50s. By the time we reached Tucumcari, NM, we had blue sky and temps near 90! This is absolutely fabulous country with terrific scenery everywhere. I was in Santa Fe in May of 1993 and was totally entranced, so it's just great to be here again. It's unlike any other place I've ever been in. We're staying in the area today, checking out nearby places with a history going back centuries.
Not a lot of time now, so we'll do our best to check in later tonight. In the meantime, we have an UNBELIEVABLY clear blue sky this morning and the high should be around 80. Can't wait to get out and explore! Bye for now!
