    This is the Museum of Fine Arts that we got into with our museum passport. It is just beside the Palace of Governors. Santa Fe has lots of art and lots of museums. Notice the adobe style of this building. I think there is some kind of city order in effect requiring all buildings to be of Adobe. It gives the entire city a special atmosphere that all the buildings look this way.

    If you like the outdoors Tent Rocks is an excellent place to visit, even with children. Tent Rocks and exactly what they are (Rocks that look like Tents) it is about 20 miles North of Santa Fe off of I-25. You can take the strenuous path at Tent Rocks or the simple quiet scenic route. Either way I am sure you will find Tent Rock interesting and unique.

    If you have time, make a reservation for a soak &/or massage at Ten Thousand Waves. You can get a private tub or join others in a public tub. Clothing is optional and rarely seen in the public tubs - you may wear a bathing suit if you are more comfortable. They have all kinds of body treatments and facials. It is a wonderful place, and you wil leave refreshed and calm. Great in the day for sun worship or the night for stargazing. Your tub will be integrated with the outdoors. Call ahead if you prefer a private tub - they can be hard to come by on short notice.

    Tour the internationally know Santa Fe Opera House then, if it's a weekend, hop over to Trader Jack's flea market with an amazing array of goods from local artisans to garage sale items, to treasures from Mexico, Peru & Africa.

    Salinas National Monument

    Gran Quivira

    This is not really in Santa Fe but is south of I-40.

    The monument consists of the ruins of three ancient pueblos:

    Gran Quivira
    Quarai
    Abo

    This is definitely worth the visit if you have the time.

    Camel Rock

    It's obvious how this unique rock formation got its name. Located by US84 between Santa Fe and Espanola

    ..... and off they go. Traditional costumes, traditional music, traditional dances. I was a bit worried about him, he struggled with so many rings - but managed to get out again in the end.

    The weekend of the Indian Market is also the time when tourists can actually see Indian dances (just around the corner from the Plaza).

    Once a year, on a weekend in August, there´s Indian Market on the Plaza. All kinds of crafts are for sale, and there are more artists in the surrounding lanes.

    TenThousandWaves is without a doubt a blast from the past for every hippie and nudist alive. Public nudity can be found in the communial tubs and private spas are available for that special someone.

    Photo taken inside the Mission of San Miguel. Don't forget to ring the bell in the gift shop area. The clerk might even loan you a small rubber hammer to make it ring. It has a beautiful tone.
