I spent the first half of last week in New Mexico with my family. It was the perfect long weekend with a good balance of activity, culture, and time to relax.
My favorite part of the trip was our visit to Bandeleir National Monument where we saw petroglyphs, standing walls, and cave dwellings (my favorite) dating back as far as 11,000 years!
We also spent time walking around the galleries and shops in Santa Fe’s main square, where I picked up some goodies for the apartment. We made a quick visit to the Georgie O’Keeefe museum which showcased some of her lesser-known paintings of the New Mexico landscape. We popped inside the Loretto Chapel to see the famous “mystery staircase” (apparently built by St. Joseph himself!) and, of course, ate our fair share of tacos, burritos, and New Mexican chile sauces.
PS I also got this amazing view of Manhattan on my way out of the city : )
