Un Viaje Muy Marvilloso

Contributed by

I would like to share some of the places and areas visited by my wife and I on our recent trip to Northern New Mexico.

We began our excursion by flying into Albuquerque, after spending some time visiting friends in Denver. We decided to

stay in Albuquerque having arrived in late afternoon. We decided to visit "Old Town"; It was a total disappointment.

Dinner was okey. The next day  we headed out to Sandia Peak and took The Aerial Tram and had a bite to eat at the top.

It was then time to head to Santa Fe via Madrid and Cerillos. This places do not seem like what I remember. I swear that

a couple were the same ones I had seen at Haight Ashberry in the 70"s. Can someone give me an update on Madrid?

What do the people do to make a living?

Arriving in Santa Fe, the first order of business was to find a nice B&B to stay a couple of Days. While in Santa Fe, we visited

relatives, went out to eat with them. The next day some of the relatives joined us on a trip along The High Road to Taos,stopping 

at Chimayo, Corduva, Truchas, Las Trampas, Penasco and others. We visited the Santa Fe National Cemetery, and took some

pictures of the "Navajo Code Talkers" monument. Took a trip to Hyde Park,Canyon Road and visited with relatives in Tesuque.

We visited the San Isidro Church in Tesuque and left some flowers for my grandma and my father, We went back to Santa Fe and

had a late lunch at the famous Plaza Cafe.

We took a second visit to Chimayo to worship at the "Santuario".  We had the best meal at the Rancho de Chimayo Restaurente".

On the way out I shook hands, and very briefly talked to el senor Jaramillo, inquired about Maria, He stated that she was in california;

I asked him to give her my regards. I wanted to attend The Hispanic Genealogical Research Centers Conference in Albuquerque, however

due to a lack of time was unable to do so. So, that was my most recent excursion into the Northern Part of The Land Of Enchantment.
