How do you like this image, the detail of one of my favorite sculptures along Canyon Road in Santa Fe? Hello and good morning from Denver, Colorado, where I am spending several hours before boarding my plane to Regina. What a wonderful week it has been – filled with sunshine, exploring Santa Fe, its surroundings and attending this year’s SAQA conference.
The conference was a complete success with plenty of opportunities to network, attend informative lectures, have some fun, enjoy great company and good food. A small contingent of Canadians was present representing Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec.
I decided to take my friend up on the suggestion to arrive early and stay a couple extra days after the conference to explore this culturally rich area of the American Southwest. We were not disappointed. We visited museums, historical buildings, famous Canyon Road with its world renowned art galleries, Taos and the Pueblo, the Mission at Chimayo and Chaco Canyon. A full week, when you consider that there was also a conference on the agenda.
Best laid plans to post regularly to my travel blog travel blog were soon abandoned in favour of more time to explore. In addition, the images I could download to my iPad came from my iPhone and small point-and-shoot camera and leave a lot to be desired… I did upload a couple of short posts, one with images of doors along Canyon Road. I am working on a series of posts to share my eight days away from snow and melting ice. Stay tuned as I sort through 64 GB of images on my laptop once I arrive home. I hear that Saskatchewan has had a spring time blizzard last night and roads are closed… We shall see when I make it home. I am glad I am all packed for my teaching trip to Alberta and BC starting Friday… One less thing to worry about.
Time to make my way to the gate. Enjoy your day wherever you may be today!
Thanks Anna For the Great pictures from Santa Fe, especially the tulips. Thanks for a great trip through your photos.
You are welcome, Brenda!
Dear Anna: The photo of the sculpture reminded me of how much I love the American South West. Sounds like you visited all our favourite places. I am glad you enjoyed your visit. It is indeed rich in art and culture. Ann Dickie
Hi Anne, so nice to hear from you! Can’t wait to share more images, but it will have to wait a bit…
