Things I'll Miss About Santa Fe: Canyon Road

Well, we're winding down now, so over the next week and a half, I'll put up  posts about some of the things we'll miss about Santa Fe. They aren't in any particular order, so I'll begin with pictures  from Canyon Road.

Santa Fe is full of art galleries, but Canyon Road is kind of the official art district. It's a narrow winding road, lined with galleries, shops and restaurants. We love walking up and down it, in every season.




Love these dancing sheep!
 

RV Painter loves the dancing sheep too -a little too much, if you ask me!


Cool Bronze


Funky Santa Fe style


A little side street off Canyon Road


Guess we better buy folk art ...



We bought a Happy Rug like the red one - it will go in the RV
 


The only reason this restaurant is worth mentioning is that actress Kate Walsh ate there the same day we did

  4. Those sheep are FINE! I love them. Maybe not too much, though. Santa Fe is a place I would like to visit. Next time.

    1. It's a great town - a small walking city, beautiful architecture, no tall buildings, a Plaza (that's another post) and great food.

  16. Dear Melissa, . . . those sheep are a hoot! They make me laugh just looking at them jig.

    I noted that my comment was deleted from your Tuesday post. Did I saw something unacceptable? I surely hope not. If I did, I apologize.

    Peace.

    1. Really? No - I don't know why that would have happened! I must have hit something wrong. I was having trouble with my replies to comments the other day!

  17. What an interesting place. I like the idea of taking the rug with you on your travels as a momento.

    1. We got the rug a while back and it turns out to be just the right thing (I think ) for the RV.

  18. I want to go there! I've been to Santa Fe, and thought I'd seen the best of it. Obviously not. Next time I will find Canyon Road. Thanks.

    You must be getting excited about your trip now.

    Happy Weekend!

  20. I think you are very brave to leave this wonderful place. What I would miss is the wind, the desert breeze. I was there in 1969 and I still remember that soft wind. Thank you so much for your kind comment on my post.

    1. Hi Inger - it's a wonderful town and the weather is generally gorgeous. The gentle winds though, in spring are not so gentle and are really annoying! But they settle down, and I don't know of any place that has nicer summer weather.

  21. It is just how I have pictured it in my mind. You make me what to go there! Love the sheep.
