Santa Fe

May 14, 2012

[via Camera Awesome — I’m a little obsessed with this app right now!]

Last week Steve presented at a conference in Santa Fe, and I tagged along. It’s only (only?) an 8 hour drive, so we decided to make it a road trip.

I must confess that the drive from Oklahoma City to Amarillo isn’t particularly scenic, but once we hit the mesas in west Texas, things got interesting. I’ll spare you the photos I took through the window with my iPhone. Well, all except this one:

Here we’re about half an hour from Santa Fe — I loved this vista of huge sky and mountains in the distance.

Once we were settled into our hotel, we walked about town and enjoyed the cool air and sun, taking a few photos before eating a late lunch.

Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi — east of the Plaza.

The Loretto Chapel — a bit of Southwest Gothic just for me!

The Lensic Theater.

It wasn’t necessary to awesomize this photo, right? On Thursday I drove down to Albequerque to visit with Caroline Starr Rose, the author of one of my favorite books, May B. Caroline is beautiful, warm, and wise — it was such a pleasure to hang out with her.

The day before I had the opportunity to breakfast with agent-sister Tiffany Trent, who was in town for a Science Writing conference (how cool is that?). We had a grand old time chatting about writing and Duran Duran, but silly me forgot to take a photo. Great to see you, Tiffany! Can’t wait for the Unnaturalists to come out. 🙂
