This morning, we bid a fond farewell to Boulder. It's an area I love and plan on returning to over and over again. But I couldn't be too bummed about leaving, because our destination for the day was Santa Fe. Santa Fe reminds me of San Francisco in the ease of finding good food. I'm now full of lovely spicy southwestern treats. Another aspect of Santa Fe that I enjoy is how it blends into the surrounding environment. You could almost pass it by without knowing the city is there. Normally I'm a proponent of building up instead of out, but Santa Fe seems to have controlled both. I also like the laidback vibe, and it's the only place in the world where Southwestern-themed decor doesn't piss me off.

Now back to the hotel, where a bubble bath, dessert, and pleasant company await me. Not a bad way to end the day.

Today - 420 miles

Tomorrow - traveling across the desert Southwest

Hmm... I was thinking Santa Fe, and then I ran across an article ranking it high on Cities To Be Old In and not ranking it in any of the other categories and stopped thinking it, but now I'm thinking it again.

I will admit, a lot of the visitors to Santa Fe seem to be older, but it's surrounded by great outdoor activities. I can't imagine it being a bad City To Be Young In.

anta Fe seems like a great place to visit, eat incredibly good food, retire, or engage in New Age-y activities. I'm not sure how much more there is to Santa Fe, but I've never done anything but be a real surface-level tourist there.
