t e n t r o c k s | national monument + santa fe
angie and i took off sunday at noon and headed to santa fe for an overnight trip. santa fe is about an hour south of taos, so its super close. we stayed at the hotel chimayo on the plaza. we had a wood burning fire place in our room. and believe me, we burned every piece of wood because it was chilly! on the way down to santa fe, we stopped and had a late lunch at gabriel's. it was fantastic! we had the conchinta pibil and the carne adovada along with table side made guacamole. yes to all of it! we made another stop along the way which will be a whole other post:)
monday morning we slept in a little, worked out, got dressed and walked over to cafe pasqual's, where we had one of the best breakfasts i have ever tasted, along with some mexican hot chocolate made with almond milk. then we spent the rest of the morning wondering the plaza and finding treasures.
next we headed to tent rocks national monument where we hike through the canyon up to the top. it is such a cool and beautiful place. i was surprised by how narrow it got. the rock formations are amazing. and what a view from the top! it started pouring on us and we ran all the way down. it was so much fun.
we headed back into santa fe because we planned to eat indian food at raaga's. and again, we were not disappointed. it was really really delicious. the atmosphere was warm and charming and the service stellar. paddy rawal greeted us as soon as we walked in and he came to our table while we were eating to make sure we were happy:) it was the perfect way to end our trip... northern new mexico is not lacking in beautiful scenery or good food, that's for sure.
girl time is a must in this life. especially when it is with a sister. we missed you jules! we were wishing you were with us the whole time;( we love you!!!
i was very teary during my trail run this morning. i stood on the cliff next to the gorge and cried my eyes out for o for a long time.
hope your week is going smooth lovers. toodles for now...
