Santa Fe Trail Searching for Georgia O'Keefe

Santa Fe - a colorful town with links to Georgia O'Keefe . . .

Welcome to Santa Fe with the colorful overpasses with the most amazing skies
Los Suenos Campground with wash and road behind for walking and biking
We arrived in Santa Fe and needed a little break so we spent two nights at Los Suenos de Santa Fe campground (a Passport America park). I highly recommend staying in the very back where the layout  is level and next to a wash and road where you can easily walk or ride your bike. The dog exercise area is also here as well.  We enjoyed our stay here and spent some time exploring an area that we had previously been to. The downtown area was very active with native americans selling their jewelry on the square. I prefer buying directly from them as the shops in town are very pricey. We attended a church service at the  St Francis Cathedral downtown.

We also visited Geogia O'Keefe's Museum to the whinning of Guy who is not too thrilled at spending time looking at art. He should have enjoyed the O'Keefe Museum because she was a distant cousin of his. But no, he was not impressed. I was a little disappointed myself as there were a number of her better works that were not represented.

A trip to Santa Fe would not be complete without visiting our favorite flea mkt, the Tesuque Flea Market just North of town on the way to Taos. Some really good sellers there who talked us into buying another sign for our front yard. As if we need another one! The flea  market is not as large as I remember. The vendors told us that a lot of sellers have left because of the economy. What a shame!
