The Land of Enchantment – With Pictures

Brian and I went up to Santa Fe today to visit my aunt and uncle. We took the back road — NM 14, known as the Turquoise Trail — through the east side of the Sandia Mountains and past the little towns of Madrid (pronounced “MAD-rid”) and Cerrillos, then up to the foothills south of Santa Fe. We came back along I-25, and then back to Albuquerque. Here are some of the sights.

Heading north on NM 14.

More below the fold.

Teta Peak, a landmark west of Santa Fe.

Tomorrow I’ll head back east to Independence, Kansas, and the start of the William Inge Festival. See you there.
