Espanola, New Mexico – Day 6

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues.

The motorhome is still parked at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Airee #3695 in Espanola about 25 miles north of Santa Fe. The weather has started to turn cooler, so I’m planning to depart this morning.

Yesterday I drove the Bronco about eight miles to visit the Oke Weenge aka San Juan Indian Pueblo located along the Rio Grande River. This was where Spanish conquistador Don Juan de Onate established the first capital of New Mexico. Other than that there is nothing particularly spectacular about modern-day Oke Weenge.
