DAY 288

Photobucket

“We must go beyond textbooks, go out into the bypaths and untrodden depths of the wilderness and travel and explore and tell the world the glories of our journey.” John Hope Franklin

Since the kids are missing school we have made a point to make our trip educational. There's so much history here.

Highlights of the day include:

  • shopping downtown Santa Fe; the kids got an education in bartering with the locals for some souvenirs (Little Man didn't fare so well)
  • eating a delicious fajita and tamale from a local street vendor
  • visiting Bandera Volcano and Ice Cave (a collapsed lava tube formed the ice cave, which stays at 31 degrees year round)
  • missing the Tram at the Sandia Mtns... again

I have family in NM...my aunt and uncle live in Pecos (I think that's it, its next to Santa Fe) and my grandparents live down towards Las Cruces in a small town. My other uncle lives in Albur. So its kind of fun to see your pics and adventure here, hope you guys continue to have fun! And hopefully I'll get caught up sooN!
