Madrid and Santa Fe, New Mexico

Happy Friday friends!!!!

First off, I want to give a big shout out to Heidi for nominating me for a Liebster award.  Thanks so much Heidi!  I've already done the Liebster a few times, so I'm gonna pass the torch, but I am always amazed at how supportive the blogging community is.  Seriously ladies.  I love ya!

I'm still sorting through pics of my vacation down to New Mexico, and thought I'd share some favorites from day 2.  After hiking the awesomely phallic tent rocks on day 1, We took a long drive down the Turquoise Trail to Santa Fe, stopping in Madrid.  Yes, Madrid.  Pronounced like baaaa-drid.  Like a sheep noise.  ha!

Here are some photos of Madrid.  This teeny town town is super rad.  Just a small (like one street small) artist community with a surreal midwestern feel to it.   Historically, Madrid has been known for having one of the brightest Christmas displays in the world.  It's even where Walt Disney got his inspiration for early Disneyland.

Santa Fe was a bit disappointing, because the weather decided to piss sleet all over us.  It was so windy we couldn't even be outside.  We made the best of it, by eating and hopping into little shopping centers, and I managed to get a couple of shots within the first hour of being there before the weather went nuts.  Santa Fe is like being transported into a movie where everything is adobe style.  EVERYTHING!  I think it's a law or something.  Super neat little place, and someday I'll go back when it's not 1 of the ZERO days a year it rains there.

I've got a handful more days to share!  Still some ancient cliff dwellings and Kitchen Mesa.  Stay tuned!
