Day 26 – Lloyd & Harry go to Sante Fe

Leaving Tucumcari we had a bite at Rubee’s. The special was green chili eggs, potatoes and biscuits and gravy.

Before heading to the highly anticipated Santa Fe, NM, we stopped and had to wrangle a souvenir or two. I got a cowboy hat and Dennis got a Scorpion paper weight.

The road was another long one, the 66 turn into the 40 most of the way. We veered off at the scenic RT 3 to go through Villneueva towards Santa Fe. We climbed to an elevation of 7,000 feet.

Along the road, on OUR SIDE OF THE FENCE, a HUGE BULL was resting in the shade. Too scared to stop and take his photo we speed on to the next, friendlier looking cow… that was BEHIND the fence and caught this shot.

We arrived in Santa Fe hungry… of course! So we walked down to the plaza and got a bite at a little French cafe. I got soup and Dennis indulged in a half sandwich.

This is about where our day ended… I had a cold coming on and the altitude didn’t help either. We strolled around the plaza bit more, finding wall to wall shopping that didn’t interest us a bit. High end trinkets and over priced “native” jewelry were in abundance. We felt about out of place as Lloyd and Harry in Aspen.
