Santa Fe, New Mexico – Day 2

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues.

The motorhome is parked at Fraternal Order of Eagles #2811. I expect to be here a couple of more days.

Santa Fe has a population of about 68,000 and is at about 7,000 feet of elevation. You can read all about this city by clicking this Wikipedia informational link…,_New_Mexico

Yesterday I drove the Bronco the less than two miles to old town Santa Fe. Being such an old city the streets are narrow and parking is a chore. Among the things I saw were:

*The oldest house in the United States, circa 1646…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

* The oldest church, circa 1610…

* The Loretto Chapel with its mysterious circular staircase…

*The old central plaza area…

including 109 East Palace Avenue. Recently while in Los Alamos, I wrote about the Manhattan Project and the development of the atomic bomb. You can read about the role this portal (now a shop entrance) played in the fifth paragraph of this link…

and finally St. Francis of Assisi Cathedral Basilica…

A most enjoyable day. I’ll continue exploring the city today.

Enjoying historical places is another joy of a full-time RVer!

      Thank you. I use a Sony DSC-HX200V. It’s the top of the Sony line for point and shoot cameras.

  2. Jim, I have just started following you. Great photos of my home town. Ed

  3. Reblogged this on Aesthetic Boffo and commented:
    This is just a beautiful place and work of art. If all cities had this class of architecture and design, more eye easy beauty would surround us.
