The Art of Trees – Santa Fe

My holiday road trip on and off Route 66 took me to Santa Fe for a couple of days. It was a week into the new year and crowds were thin. We were able to wander the town square and other areas taking pictures without waiting on people and cars to exit the frame.  We stayed just off the square at La Posada de Santa Fe, also known as the art hotel of Santa Fe.  Filled with original works of art for sale, it was perfect. Also perfect, was the Georgia O’Keeffe museum.  Here are some “tree-full” memories from the Santa Fe art scene and landscape.

  1. My husband and I took a Route 66 road trip (from St. Louis, where we were visiting relatives, to s far west as Flagstaff before we headed home to San Diego) a couple of years ago and had a great time! There is so much to see and experience, and so much to photograph along the way. I loved Sante Fe and all the art, but we had the feeling that we should have visited 20 – 30 years ago.


      • When we were there, it seemed pretty touristy and many of the stores were no longer owned by locals. In talking to people who lived there, or who have visited through the years, Santa Fe has lost its small town vibe. Still lovely, just different.

        As a side note, maybe I’m missing it, but I don’t see where I can subscribe to your blog via email (I don’t use Reader). Is that the case?.
