Geo: 35.6915, -105.937For pictures of the route through First People's lands between Santa Fe and Page please see post in last blog http://www.travelpod.com/travel-blog-entries/malonetravels2/20/1417966106/tpod.html=========================This post is a segue from the Santa Fe fall fun series to this series of pictures and stories. We left Santa Fe one fine evening and traveled to Farmington, New Mexico. You pass through some of the First People's lands as you travel to Farmington and then the next day we traveled through more of them.A great deal of the time we were in the Navajo Nation and this is what the picture is in this story. One of the towns you pass through is Kayenta which has a Burger King with an excellent display of the Navajo Codetalkers of World War II. The last of the code talkers died recently so this ... read more

Geo: 35.6915, -105.937No class today so took full advantage of the beautiful sunshiny day to be outside. Had set up a massage and took the bus to the stop closest to shere we were going and then walked the rest of the way enjoying the beautiful weather.After the massage decided to head downtown to get something to eat. Walked another direction and caught the bus and got off near the Santa Fe river. Walked through the Capital complex enjoying the statues and trees changing color. We are just about to the end of the fall colors and were enjoying all that we saw.Had a nice meal outside at the Santa Fe Bite(formerly Bobcat Bite) near the Capital Complex. Beautiful day, colors and just all around enjoyable experience.... read more

Geo: 35.6915, -105.937Another chance to get ourselves ready for the trip out to Lake Powell. This time we headed for Cochiti which is about 30 minutes south of Santa Fe. This is a great time to be out on the water at either Cochiti or Abiquiu because there are very few other people out on the water.We got on the water and cruised along the shoreline checking out the rock formations as we glided past. This time of year we also see bluebirds here quite often as well as a raptor or two hunting along the shore. The robins were out in full force flitting along the way.We had a special treat on this particular paddle. Robert all of a sudden says, "listen". It was the sandhill cranes heading down the river toward the Bosque de ... read more

Geo: 35.6915, -105.937This is a great time of year to be in Santa Fe, the weather is still ok for being outside if you dress warmly, and the scenery is great! We have our month bus pass so we bus and walk to most places we go.Took the bus down to the Santa Fe Baking Company and had lunch and then walked through the neighborhoods to the CCA Cinematheque. It was a wonderful walk with plenty for us to check out as we walked along.Went to see Citizenfour, the story about Edward Snowden and his revelations. Was a very thought provoking film. From there we decided to have some fun. Our friend Robert Bruen was playing with a band at the original Second Street Brewery and we decided to go and watch them. Got there early, ... read more

Geo: 35.6915, -105.937We were not in Santa Fe when the WildEarth Guardians Gala happened but we were going to be in town when the Tree Huggers Bash happened in Albuquerque. We volunteered to come help with setting up and taking down and made plans to spend the night at our favorite place to stay in Albuquerque, the Route 66 Hostel.Decided to catch the later train so we could go to our exercise class and then eat before we hopped aboard! Great class, parked the car so we could catch the bus downtown and then to Zia Diner for a bite to eat. The train ride as always was very interesting and relaxing. Got to Albuquerque and found the bus stop and headed to the hostel. Transportation services in Abq have it where you can use your ... read more

Geo: 35.6915, -105.937Now for some fun in Santa Fe. Halloween time and there is no Sixth street to go down to watch all the costumes and fun as there was in the past in Austin. Not that we have been there in many years.............Decided to go to Cowgirls because they were supposed to have a good band, no cover and surely lots of costumes. As is our usual practice, took the bus down to the Railyard District and walked over to Cowgirls. Were able to get a seat fairly quickly at the bar, ordered some food and drink and then settled back to watch all the goings on.There were many different costumes around, some very clever and others from the costume shop but it did seem that most people were having a very good time. Did ... read more

Geo: 35.687, -105.938Another bonus for us living in Santa Fe is the Genoveva Chavez Community center and all the activities we can benefit from while we are here. There are several different yoga classes offered as well as our Stretch and Strengthen class we have been attending regularly for the past several years.These are the programs we benefit from but they also have the full weight room, inside track, stationary bikes, ice rink, olympic pool and many others activities we have not yet seen. When we got back this time they were installing solar panels over the parking area! Yeah! ... read more

Geo: 35.6915, -105.937From our balcony, we can look up on the mountains heading to the ski lift and see all the aspen mixed in with the conifers. We began to see them starting to change color and decided we needed to go and check them out.Got up early one morning and headed up to the ski basin. Since it was early, there was still mist rising off the road as we headed up and made the trees so magical looking!Because we were up there early, we were able to stop several times and take a look at the aspens in all their glory. Got to the top and got out and looked down over the city of Santa Fe and were once again reminded of one of the many reasons we are so happy we are ... read more

Geo: 35.6915, -105.937One of the fun things we do while we are here in Santa Fe is volunteer with WildEarth Guardians. They have a wonderful office right on the Santa Fe river which makes for a very peaceful place to be. We generally take the bus downtown and walk over to the office.This time of year it is wonderful with all the changing leaves, blue sky and beautiful buildings. We often times bring our lunch with us and eat out in the wonderful courtyard. This time we have been helping with office work, getting mail outs ready for delivery and other things like that.The more fun volunteer work is when we go and take down fences or plant trees. Hopefully there will be some more opportunities for this in the future.... read more
