Santa Fe--the Southwest's home of the restaurants and art galleries. June is a great time to visit, with warm but not-too-hot days and cooler evenings. During our visit, the economy is down somewhat, and even though it is my first trip here, people are saying it is not as busy as usual.

After a couple of expensive dinner bills, however, I figure the local businesses can't be hurting that bad.

This famous staircase, in the Loretto Chapel, leads to the Choir Loft. What is unique about it is that is that the spiral wood structure is totally self-supporting, with no center column.

Santa Fe is famous for its art galleries. Most of them are along Canyon Road. A great stroll to see a wide variety of art you can buy, if you can afford it.
