Today after going out on the Pecos Studio Tour we stopped at a place not to far from my home called Harry's Roadhouse. This is a great place to grab a bite to eat when your in the mood for "I don't know what I want to eat." They have a great menu with a variety dishes to tempt your pallet.

It seems like no matter where you go around the outer areas of town you will find and old abandonded truck just sitting out in a yard. Then there are quite a few that running around town beautifully painted and cared for. It would be nice to have some time to get one and fix it up. Someday.

This weekend is the High Road Art Tour. The High Road is one of the roads that leads from Santa Fe to Taos. There are 53 galleries most of which you have to drive to. Today we only got through 29. Good thing its a two weekend tour. This is the Castillo gallery in Truchas, it has some great sculpture both in wood and metal.

This sign is on the road to and from the ski basin. As you can see if you click on the photo someone stuck a snowboarding sticker on the sign. Someone also posted a note stating that they lost their iPod, a recent birthday gift. I hope they found it.
I also hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend. Happy Friday!

The Santa Fe National Forest is approximately 12 miles north of my home. I decided to spend a little time with Mother Nature and just get lost in my thoughts. I got quite a few really good pictures. I hope you enjoy them. Just imagine the sound of the wind and little animals scurrying around.

Later in the day on Sunday afternoon there was the Historical/Hysterical Parade. It included Don Deigo Vargas and his men as well alot of people from the community. This by far was my favorite. Just a bunch of people wishing love and peace to everyone.

Today to end the Fiestas there was a procession of La Conquistadora or Our Lady of Peace. Story has it that this is the oldest known Marian statue in the "New World". She was once stolen in the 70's but was returned to her place of honor in the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. It is said that Don Diego de Vargas prayed to her prior to retaking Santa Fe from the Pueblo Indians.

Today I went in the plaza specifically to listen to Mariachi Buenaventura. They are Santa Fe's first and only all female Mariachi group. These young women were remarkable. They range from 15yrs old to somewhere in their twenties. Wish I had a video recorder so that all of you could hear some great music.

Or "Old Man Gloom" as they refer to him. This 49ft puppet is burned to rid the people of bad things that may have happened in the past year. It was inspired by a similar ritual of the Yaqui indians of Mexico. The residents of Santa Fe are invited to write they gloomy thoughts and they are burned with old man gloom at dusk. Here are just a few photos of the event. If you would like to know more check out
