Santa Fe, NM ~ The first two photos were taken within the city of Santa Fe, but the remaining were taken within an Indian reservation, location unknown (unremembered). Sometimes we just start driving in a direction until we feel like stopping. Therefore, I can’t remember how we arrived at this particular reservation outside of Santa Fe, but I do remember stopping due to the beautiful church grounds.
Santa Fe, NM ~ This was one of the first stops on our Santa Fe tour. At the time I wasn’t aware of the significance of the chapel, it was just a nice place to stop. When we saw the “miraculous staircase” inside we were blown away. Not only is it beautifully constructed, the story of how it came to be is fascinating. Did St. Joseph build this staircase? It is a miraculous mystery, the best kind.

Various Locations ~ I was asked to put together a set of black and white photos for a family member to use in their restaurant. These are the photos they selected, in black and white of course. Some of these photos have already been posted (in color) on this website. The newer ones, taken this year or last year, have yet to be posted. So this is sort of a sneak peak of things to come. Enjoy!

Carlsbad, NM ~ Carlsbad is a neat place, but somewhat out of the way. If planning to visit, it would be best to anticipate spending the entire day, or more, here. The cavern tours can take hours depending on how far you’d like to walk. You certainly wouldn’t want to rush that, not that you could – them caves are slippery! I also enjoyed walking around outside. There are many interesting exhibits about the history of the land, the local plant/animal […]
Artesia, NM ~ If you are a David Bowie fan, check out the movie “The Man Who Fell to Earth.” It was filmed in Artesia and surrounding areas, which is one of the reasons we decided to visit. The town isn’t very large, but it has tons of character and many historical elements.
