Santa Fe, New Mexico
We have really enjoyed our multi-day visit exploring Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Friday morning was spent at the Santa Fe Library, Main Branch, accessing the free WiFi. This is an older library and we found some of the electrical outlets did not work. We spent the afternoon taking a driving tour of the downtown Plaza. During our tour we discovered The Chocolate Smith, specializing in Craft Chocolates.
We indulged our passion for chocolate and purchased the following chocolates:
- Petite Dark Raspberry-Rich Chocolate Ganache’
- Hand Dipped Dark Raspberry Chocolate
- Dipped Ginger Sake Soaked Chocolate
Saturday morning was spent at the Santa Fe Library, La Farge Branch, accessing the free WiFi. This appears to be a newer library and better suited our creature comforts while accessing WiFi. We spent the afternoon doing a walking tour of the downtown Plaza.
Sunday morning we visited the Santa Fe Ski Area. The ski area is at an elevation of 10,300 feet, located eight miles from our campground, Black Canyon Campground, within the Santa Fe National Forest. There was still some snow remaining on some of the ski runs. One hearty, die-hard skier was hiking up the mountain, with skis strapped to his backpack, looking to make perhaps his final run for the season.
Sunday afternoon we visited the downtown Plaza. The Plaza was filled with visitors, enjoying the spectacle of a car show. On display were Classic Cars, Funny Cars, Muscle Cars and an awesome Custom Built Motorcycle.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
