We left Tucumcari this morning and headed for Durango, Colorado, where we hope to drive the San Juan Skyway tomorrow. Our trip here brought us through Santa Fe, NM, a place that we loved when here in 2005. This time, however, we just passed through, since we faced a pretty long ride. We also wanted to arrive with some time to get oriented in Durango, which we did with a lovely stroll down Main Avenue. The Old Town is charming, with some interesting architecture and cleverly-named shops.
The wealth of this former mining town is revealed with a drive or walk down 3rd Avenue, replete with large, striking Victorian “cottages.”
Unrelated to my post on Durango, we received this photo from our time in Kansas City. It was taken by a member of the chorus and I thought it should get posted, so here goes:
