adios, new mexico

Our last morning in Santa Fe was spent strolling around the local Farmers Market. The market is located at the new Railyard, and it’s a haven for craftspeople of all kinds. There is a smorgasborg of traditional fare and wares, baked goods, homegrown veggies, and handmade arts and crafts.

This lady is preparing native ristras, hanging clusters of chile peppers. Ristras are everywhere in Santa Fe.

I really liked this giant crow/raven/blackbird thing. I saw a lot of the real live versions flapping around the edges of town.

I thought these felted slippers were really cool. I love the way the gray ones curl up like wooden shoes, and aren’t these baby boooties super sweet?

Red chile. Have you ever thought of sprinkling hot chile powder on apple slices?

Yeah, me neither.

Zia and Cousin Makayla. They really hit it off over this visit!

When it came time to say goodbye to Grandma and Grandpa, Zia cried a little, but it seemed a bit fake. I think she sensed it was a time for sadness, and then she bounced right back to her happy self, as you can see here. After that, she proceeded to pinch Grandma’s ear, the little elf!


Finally on the long road home!
