Ray & Dot - Amarillo to Santa Fe
March 25-28, 2011
Ray Thompson's Albums > Ray & Dot - Amarillo to Santa Fe
In March 2011, my friend Dot Murphy and I made a six day trip to Santa Fe and Taos for some sightseeing, shopping, and to see some snow. We didn't see much snow but enjoyed beautiful weather every day. This is the 2nd long trip we have enjoyed together, traveling in my new Nissan 3.25SR-V6, which we both like to drive! We drove a total of 1675 miles, had great fun, and took a lot of pictures, We have divided the BEST of them into albums, so that you don't have to look at ALL of them. :-) Oh, at the very end is a 5-minute show of some panoramic shots I made into movie! Enjoy with us!

These next few pictures were what we found, trying to visit the Santa Fe Opera House!

No can do! it is all fenced off but we found plenty of scenery..

image

Lost, we discovered a delightful village!


image

It was a fun place that a lot of others had found also.


image

ONE sandwich was enough for two, and the sweet potato fries were memorable!


image

I caught my breath and reached for my camera when I saw Dot under a skylight!

image

We both enjoy shopping, anywhere, and I often take pictures—the colors are so beatiful!
