THAT SANTA FE STYLE
This is our fourth visit to Santa Fe and certainly not our last. We've already booked a spot for October 2018. We love the fact that this city of 70,000 has no highrises or skyscrapers. Buildings can not be taller the the unfinished cathedral bell towers on the plaza. The buildings are a combination of Pueblo and Spanish Territorial styles.
The tan adobe is ubiquitous - if you stand on the hills outside of town the city sort of blends into the landscape. Of course there is plenty of color splashing here and there to add pizazz to the otherwise monochromatic aura..
We can happily spend a few hours wandering around town. The area downtown is small enough that you can walk up Overlook Hill near Fort Marcy and then along the river up to the top of Canyon Road then back down to the Plaza in the space of an afternoon.
Public art is displayed throughout the city. Along with the sculptures, the flowers were coming out.
Santa Fe Skies says it all... the RV park we are staying in gives a glorious "golden hour" followed by as much color as you can absorb.
