Santa Fe, NM is one of our favorite places to stop. In fact we have added this area to our list of potential places to have a home base down the road sometime. We had reservations for the July 4th holiday so we would be assured a place at the inn so to speak during those periods when every camping site is taken. We arrived 5 days early though. Some of this was because we had been having zero connection at Conchas Lake and Palo Duro. Since Joe teleworks he can not be unconnected for very long. On Saturday we visted the Pecos National Historial Park. It is only about 20 minutes from where we are staying in Santa Fe, which is Rancheros de Santa Fe. We still are amazed at the history of our land, the good, the bad and the ugly. For linner, we went to the Plaza to Blue Corn Restaurant. Nikki had Green Chili Stew, a meal sized bowl of tender pork simmered wtih green chile, potatoes and posole served with a flour tortilla and sopaipilla. Joe had Ensalada Tostada, tortilla shell filled with pinto beans and beef, layered with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream and guacamole and side of salsa. Nikki's was excellent and Joe's just so so.
