Today I was at Maria's Studio 101, her blog is on my blog roll.
One of my fellow students mentioned she would soon be visiting New Mexico.
We talked about what a wonderful place it is to visit.
Once I got home I realized I never mentioned our journey along the
Turquoise Trail. The trail is a stretch of highway between Santa Fe and Albuquerque, it's old RT66.
For more info www.Turquoisetrail.org very cool pics.
We stopped in Madrid an old mining town that became a hippy hangout then artist colony.
( My favorite hippy)
( Chloe making a new friend)
I wish I would have taken more pictures. We were dodging rain drops.
Madrid was a rather gritty town filled with original artist works.
If Santa Fe feels a bit "overdone" take the short trip down the Turquois Trail.
Do check out the web site, it provides a good look at the town and surrounding area.
Just a beautiful part of America.
I bought a hand woven wrap/shaw in Madrid.
I need to get someone to snap a picture of me in it!
