Turquoise Trail

May 17, 2014

I will return with a more detailed story. But for now, some images from today along the Turquoise Trail… a stretch of back road between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.




Passed through the tiny village of Cedar Crest..and ate lunch at the Greenside Cafe:


Then drove through Madrid, an old coal mining town, now more or less a revived artist colony (which today was having a jazz festival so there were a lot of people milling around):






Madrid is also the site of the oldest and first lighted baseball field in the entire United States. How’s that for a statistic?  It’s seen far better days, but here it is:


This isn’t the Turquoise Trail, but after traveling since 4:30am on only two hours of sleep, this was such a welcome sight… it’s the view from the driveway of the house we’ll be staying in for the next five days on the outskirts of Santa Fe.  It’s an incredible house. Will post pictures later, as well as Santa Fe shots. But for now, good night:
