Valerie guessed correctly where we were - Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Here are some more pictures of that beautiful part of the world...
Inside the Taos Pueblo, which has been active for over a thousand years.
Joe, Lynn and Roger at the Gorge Grill in Taos.
At The Railyard in Santa Fe, which is now a large outdoor park housing public art,
Site Santa Fe (a contemporary art gallery), outdoor activity space, beautiful natural gardens, and restored historic buildings. It's such a good example of successfully updated public space.
A corner of artist Gustave Baumann's studio, housed at the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe.
Note the rich colors.
A Gustave Baumann woodcut.
BAMB! Up went the Christmas lights in Santa Fe's historic square the day after Thanksgiving.
