We travelled to Santa Fe in September, 2015 with two other couples. A trip I recommend, Santa Fe being a lovely, friendly place. Traveling with other couples means, of course, negotiation on what to do, where to go, etc, but we did get to see a lot and do a lot, and we look forward to going back to cover what we missed on this trip.
Our first stop was Sandia Peak outside of Alburquque, where we took a cable car or tram up to the top of the peak. We had a good lunch in the restaurant and enjoyed to vistas stretching out before us.
You have to wonder at times about people’s intelligence. Would you ride on the top of the cable car?

Santa Fe has a marvelous farmer’s market on Saturday, and also on Tuesday afternoons. Some scenes:
A flower vendor
Some of her wares
Little fiddle player trying to earn a buck or two
Blowup balloons not people, a nice sentiment
One of the many sculptures around Santa Fe.
More chili peppers, a wall display
Part of the Plaza, vendors selling jewelry, etc under the shade.
Some more indian sculptures:
The gal singing in the picture below had just wandered into town, and asked the guys if she could jam with them She was singing her heart out. Really pretty good.
As you can tell, the arts are alive and well in Santa Fe, as is the Native American and Hispanic heritage and culture. A great place to visit.
