Do you know the way to Santa Fe...

Eldest son Will, had a business conference to attend in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He invited me to ride to that conference with him and I accepted of course then Beverly invited herself to go along with us. ....Which also of course is just fine with me.

Our first night was in Moab UT
Then some back roads to Pagosa Springs.

 On our way we stop at newspaper rock south of Moab, and read the daily edition, haha.

At Pagosa springs we get a unit right on the edge of the lake and enjoy the wonderful scenery that night.

Will chooses cereal for dinner, and made such quick work of that bowl he must be a cereal killer...

Off our deck at dusk

And.... then we're on our way to  Santa Fe.

 That night after getting settled in we went out to eat at the famous plaza.

The next day walking to the plaza Beverly and I go to the St Francis of Assisi cathedral

And we spend a couple of very enjoyable hours wandering and window shopping around the plaza. 
The 'Plaza' is a nice place, but expensive! I was planning on picking up a painting while there, but we neglected to sell our house before we left so we could afford one..... ;)

A relaxing two days later the conference concludes and it's time to turn our noses homeward

We start on our return trip leaving Santa Fe mid morning for the short but colorful ride to Pagosa springs.
157 miles 
Will spies this cool bridge and thinks we should get a picture by it..... good call!

We are lakeside again at Pagosa Springs.
Early morning at Pagosa.

The beautiful scenery inspires Beverly to do some painting.

Then with about 1250 miles under our belts and we arrived home!
I'm very happy Will decided to ride instead of fly... another good call! I had a great time on this trip, I hope Beverly and Will enjoyed it as much as I did!!!

Thanks for stopping in and reading!!
See you next time.
