Santa Fe

is a small, artsy(southwestern) town located in the high mountain desert of New Mexico. And yes, it snows! In the winter S.F is extremely cold, and in the summer extremely hot, with the exception of monsoons. It other words, the S.F weather is extreme.

The city itself , however, is far from extreme. S.F is  a city that’s always on siesta. All the stores worth mentioning close at nine p.m.

Most of the activities in Santa Fe revolve around eating. If you have not eaten green chili before, you haven’t lived.                        2012-12-129517.02.58

It’s actually a play on the license plate tagline, which reads, “Land of Enchantment.” But I guess that phrase is funnier, or scarier (not sure which).010213165000                                       010213170505Much of the beauty can be seen looking up into the wide, desert sky. At dusk, sunsets here are extraordinary and unique.
