Santa Fe

I will be in Santa Fe in early June staying at Santa Fe Skies for 11 days. This will be my first trip to the area. I do plan to fly fish Cow Creek Ranch a couple of my days. Any other thoughts on things to do and not miss doing around the area?

Stayed at the KOA next to the highway heading north out of town when we were on our way home from the Balloon Festival. I would recommend a dinner at Harry's Roadhouse on the Old Las Vegas Highway which parallels the highway. Great food and good prices as I recall.

Take the "High Road to Taos" through Truchas. Visit the bridge over the Rio Grande Gorge and return along the Rio Grande through Velarde. Take a drive through the Sangre de Cristo mountains by Santa Fe Ski Basin.

If you plan to fish Cow Creek, you will be enjoying the Pecos Wilderness area.
For "away from Santa Fe" excursions. I would recommend:
  • Taos and Rio Grande Gorge (about 1 hour from Santa Fe)
  • Valle Grande largest volcanic caldera in N. America (also great fly fishing by advanced reservations)
  • Bandelier National Monument and Los Alamos (home of the first atomic bomb)

For things to do in and around Santa Fe:
  • Canyon Road for great art galleries
  • Santa Fe Plaza for great museums

For restaurants that the locals like to haunt:
  • The Pantry for breakfast
  • Marias for good New Mexican food
  • Jamba Cafe (in a strip mall, but great food)
  • Loyal Hound (one of our favorite off the beaten paths for dinner)
  • Geronimo's, if you decide to break the bank

We enjoyed the Georgia O'Keefe Museum tour. There is also a Farmer's Market down by the railroad tracks, not sure which days.

Santa Fe is probably most famous for it's numerous Art Galleries along Canyon Road. So don't forget to spend at least some time in the historic district.

There are a lot of good museums. One that is very interesting and doesn't cost much to attend is the Folk Art Museum. It is a huge collection of Folk Art constructed out of things like tooth picks, sewing spools, popsicle sticks, etc. Some of the work is incredible.

I suggest a road trip, without the trailer.

Any direction…..I call that area "Road Trip Heaven ".

Aztec, N.M. is interesting. It's a small town. attractions include The Aztec Ruins National Monument ( Native American Kiva and ruins ), The Aztec Museum And Pioneer Village.

This brings back memories. My family used to spend time at Cow Creek Ranch back in the 1940's and 50's. I learned to ride a horse there, as well as falling in the creek and getting wet a few dozen times. The fried trout that hit the pan within minutes of being pulled out of the creek was delicious.

There is a watercolor painting of the old ranch house and surrounding facilities hanging on my living room wall. I remember standing behind the artist and watching her paint when I was a small child. I guess my mom bought the painting, because I still have it.

Thanks for reminding me.

Speaking of memories, in the little town of Cerillos between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, there used to be a Tiffany's Saloon and Melodrama, which I just learned burned down shortly after we were there in the 1970's. The town is still apparently a throw-back to the old days, architecturally speaking, and might be a good lunch stop with or without the trailer IMO.

And ditto to the comments about parking the trailer and driving anywhere from Santa Fe, to Taos for instance. That area is breathtaking . . .

Have fun!

If opera appeals to you, Sante Fe has a great venue for it. Their opera season is famous. I also recommend the high road to Taos. There are a couple of wineries along the way.

I always recommend Paraguays Restaurant in Espanola.

We stayed at Santa Fe Rancheros and enjoyed the CG. There is a nice nature trail along the perimeter. Nice people managing the park.

x2 on the Georgia O'Keefe museum. I wasn't sure what to expect but enjoyed it quite a bit. For grocery shopping, check out Kuane's Market.
