March 12, 2006 – Snow in Santa Fe

We awoke this morning to this view of our car out our window. Until we arrived, Santa Fe had received 4/100 of an inch of precipitation this year!

We headed downtown, oblivious to the landscape (what with it obliterated by snow). We got down to the Plaza and first order of business was to find coffee.

We went to the Palace of the Governors, which is the oldest public building in the U.S, built in 1610. All the museum hopping makes you hungry, so we had lunch right next to a fireplace to help warm up.

After lunch it was more museums – this shot is at Museum Hill – home of the International Museum of Folk Art and the Museum of Native American Art and Culture.

Because it was a cold and windy day, taking in the museums was a good thing.
