6/12/14 Throwback Thursday: Santa Fe Edition

Throwback Thursday: 10 years ago this week Mom and Dad drove through Navasota from Houston and loaded up me, Nick, and Sam for a two week road trip to Santa Fe.  It's hard to believe it's been a decade.

I know I've uploaded photos here and there from this trip, but never in a complete set. So here they are, at least as complete a set as I still have. Between transferring photos through many computer incarnations, I seem to have lost most of Mom and Dad's pictures, which were the vast majority of the scenic shots. Back then I only had a little point and shoot digital that didn't hold a candle to a DSLR.

10 years ago, I had actual kids

This was at our picnicking lunch at Capulin Volcano outside Clayton, N.M.

at Chimayo Weavers

Scenic overlook stop on the way to Taos

At Taos Drums

At the Taos Pueblo

A few of Mom and Dad's photos:

Indian dancing at the Taos Best Western in the evening

dinner in Taos

The next day, we made it to Santa Fe and the amazing little rental house we'd have for a week

We could walk the few blocks to the Plaza every day.
This house, on the way, had the most spectacular lobelia we'd ever seen

in the sculpture garden of Mountain Trails Gallery

and just down the street at Señor Murphy's: Piñon fudge!

Our favorite place to eat for breakfast

Dad's souvenir

We drove down to Albuquerque one day and rode the tram up Sandia Peak

and Sam, still doing gymnastics, at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center

On another day, we spent the day driving through the Jemez Mountains, playing in streams

And, another day, stopping by Abiquiú, and getting all the way to the Colorado border past Chama before turning around 

We spent one evening watching the sunset on the ridge 

the kids amuse themselves with Pap's hat while he shoots the sunrise

And we spent lots of time just enjoying the sights of Santa Fe

And up into the mountains and campgrounds above Santa Fe

lunch on the patio

And a trip to the Santa Fe Indian Arts and Culture

At the Santa Fe Children's Museum

And, our last day, we had our feet in the water yet again
