Santa Fe Scenery
Portal, Palace of the Governors, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, Saturday June 26, 2010. Visible are tourists and vendors. Within the building is a one of Santa Fe's museums. Previously, for some centuries, this was the capital of New Mexico.
Most often, we pass through Santa Fe without stopping while en route between Albuquerque and our cabin near Heron Lake. But, this day we had lunch with friends at The Shed restaurant just a block and a bit east of the Palace of the Governors. Prices were reasonable and my blue corn chicken enchiladas had just the right amount of chile verde to make life good.
View to the north of the Santa Fe Plaza during high summer. The Plaza is the focal point of Santa Fe's historic district.
Cathedral park with north side of cathedral visible through the trees. This site is just a block east of the Plaza.
