The terrain in New Mexico is pretty much what I've seen in pictures, but we were amazed to drive almost 200 miles today and see nothing but a few towns that looked deserted. It wasn't until we got out of the flat lands and into the mountains of Sante Fe, that we began to see some life. We were elated to reach the capital of New Mexico. I can see why people like it here so much. The first thing you notice are all of the 'adobe' style homes and buildings.
After we got set up at the RV park we had to find a good Mexican restaurant
After lunch we went into the old downtown to walk. The weather was perfect.(about 60 degrees and sunny) There were lots of shops and several Native American Indians selling jewelry and other hand-made goods. Believe it or not, the boys really enjoy doing things like this.(see pic) I think it is probably because Kelly has tried to expose them to art and art classes that they have an appreciation.
I found a place to work out while Kelly and the boys did some more sight seeing. They visited St. Francis Cathedral which dates back to the 1600's.(see pic) They also visited the 'Institue of American Indian Arts Museum.'(see pic)
