ABC Wednesday-"P"=PARTING is Such Sweet Sorrow!

Because I love Santa Fe, it has been hard to leave and return to St. Paul, MN.  Although I've been back for about a month now I continued to post photos that I snapped while there, and need to stop now.  But, take heart!  I'm returning to my favorite city in July, and will again post more photos during the two weeks when I will be housesitting for friends while they're on vacation!  Can't wait!!

Need to Rest?

The Capitol has a marvelous collection of art created by New Mexican artists, and I wonder how many people tour that section of the building.  I've been there several times and have found that it's nice to be able to rest while viewing all the marvelous artwork.  The benches themselves are works of art!

I also posted a photo of a bench on my other current blog, Visual St.Paul. Go visit!

An Unusual Boardwalk

On February 22 I showed you some statues commemorating the end of the Santa Fe trail on Museum Hill as well as a map. While exploring at Pecos National Historical Park we were able to walk on this boardwalk which covered a remnant of the old original trail.  I can't imagine the hardships these traders and travellers endured so many years ago, but I was thrilled to be able to see this bit of history.

Theme Day-Statues: The Cowboy

I have posted many pictures of artistic statues that I have taken in this fair city: Native Americans because of their historical significance in this part of the country, animals of all species, and even naked/nude women exhibited in galleries on Canyon Road.   But what could be more representative of the American Southwest than the ubiquitous cowboy! So here he is!
