New Mexico

Tuesday we arose at Turquoise Trail campground — an arid, cactus-littered, definitively New Mexican campground outside Albuquerque — and drove 15 minutes to the peak of Sandia Mountain.  From the 10,678’ summit we hiked a couple miles down the beautiful La Luz trail and got our first sweet, sweet taste of Big West Mountains.


Later that afternoon we packed up and drove an hour north to Santa Fe.  After grabbing a cheap hotel room downtown, slugging a few gulps of spiced rum and donning our newly-purchased wigs, we walked to Corazon and caught a favorite band of mine Titus Andronicus.

    The last picture in this post is GREAT. Love it. 🙂 I also love the ceiling in that bar! Whenever we add on a dining room – I want THAT ceiling.
