Sante Fe & Albuquerque
There is nothing like taking a month to upload photos from a cross country trip. Nevermind that I haven't uploaded anything since in October. Hey, better late than never, right?
In January I flew to New Mexico with my friends Dustin and Andrew to meet up with our friend Jess, who lives just north of Santa Fe. For a week we fit in as much as possible in northern New Mexico. It was nothing short of alpaca cuddles (just kidding, they were actually kinda feisty), Pueblo people history, cowboy boot browsing and amazing views from amazing mountain tops.
Truly, this was one of my favorite trips I've ever been on. Partly because of the art, partly because of the landscape, and definitely because of the people.
Humming Desert Alpacas is FREE to visit! You can reserve a visit through their website, and even buy handwoven decor, hats, and other things from their shop.
Downtown Albuquerque was pretty touristy, but really cute and fun! I went all out with the fit, and picked up these cowboy boots and woven vest from a thrift store in Los Alamos.
I mean... this view.... brb moving here ASAP>
We visited Sky Coffee in downtown Santa Fe, which is right in the Santa Fe Railyard.
We took a day to explore the ins and outs of Bandelier National Monument in Los Alamos, where the Pueblo people once resided. Being a group of rock-climbers, it was a ton of fun to explore the crevices and caves.
Rugs, rugs, rugs! We visited Shiprock Santa Fe and for sure only admired the historical rugs from all different Native American tribes (none of us have a couple thousand $$$). It was still fun to look!
With love from New Mexico,
