Santa Fe - Canyon Road, 10,000 waves, Tia Sophias, and other Photos

I love the texture in this picture.  The small bird perched on the cross is also a nice touch.  This is an old church next to Upper Crust Pizza a few blocks from Santa Fe plaza.

 We ate lunch at Tia Sophia's, which has some of the best rellenos in town 

 Our table 

 We always ordered our food with Christmas colored peppers, which is to say, the peppers are red and green.

 Tia Sophia's serves piping hot pillows of sopapillas with meals 

 I want to go back now.  I really do, and just for a taste.

 Lensic theater next to Burro Alley 
 This guy was just begging to be photographed.  Looks like a high plains drifter with his Burro.
 Peppers

 The chapels around Santa Fe are truly beautiful.

 Another picture of our drifter friend 

 In the shade 

 YOu can tell we are several days into the trip.  My picture taking is beginning to annoy Kristin.
 Metal Lizard that has nothing to do with anything 

 A random street 

 Railcar

 Golden Doodle that looks like one of the Ramone brothers 

 Western Shop 

 Mural 

 This second hand store was gigantic and so so so amazing.  From vintage Valentino to old beat up hand embroidered cowboy shirts, this place had it all.  Double Take.  Go there.

 God is love.

 Some recreational biking 

 These were placed so oddly.

 This looked like a legitimate place to pick up some interesting wares.

 Probably not edible, but definitely colorful 

 Church 

 The oldest house in the United States is what the plaque said.  Look upon it ye readers, and know.


 Here we are inching on to the very prestigious Canyon Road, a mecca for fine art.

 A modern sculpture 

 The art on Canyon road is very expensive and people come from all over the world to visit the galleries here.

 An entry 

 A silver Bird 

 The structures along Canyon Road are dressed up rather beautifully 

 A celebratory tree

 Only in Santa Fe does a rusty gate look so great 

 Canyon Road Style

 Rugs for the taking 

 Napping rhino 

 More Bird 

 Entry in HDR 

 A vespa 

 Minimalist
 I finally met up with Kristin for drinks at Santa Fe Pink Adobe and Dragon Room 

 The shady capital building 

 A statue 

 Yes!  Head of hair dog.

 We got take out from this place, Vinaigrette.

 The interior was utilitarian chic.  They were having a contest to guess the weight of the pumpkin there in the picture.

 I liked the tool box thing next to the toilet 

 It was a very well designed restaurant 

 Fun but simple 

 Kristin surprised me for my birthday.  She just told me to drive, but did not tell me to where.  She gave the directions, and has we got further and further away from Santa Fe I became more confused.  Eventually we came upon a Japanese spa, called 10,000 Waves.

 Kristin reserved us the Ichiban private bath.  We followed the signs.

 The entry, looks foreboding, but we pulled open the door to many a Japanese delight.

 Our Shower, which was awesome.

 You fill up this bucket with water and dump it over your head.  It was way more fun than it sounds.

 Our personal sauna 

 The super high tech toilet 

 Lots of interesting controls 

 We had two outdoor spas in a Japanese garden.  It was a very cold night, which made the experience perfect.

 Very hot water 

 There is a little nook back there for napping 

Some flowers
