[via Camera Awesome -- I'm a little obsessed with this app right now!]
Last week Steve presented at a conference in Santa Fe, and I tagged along. It's only (only?) an 8 hour drive, so we decided to make it a road trip.
I must confess that the drive from Oklahoma City to Amarillo isn't particularly scenic, but once we hit the mesas in west Texas, things got interesting. I'll spare you the photos I took through the window with my iPhone. Well, all except this one:
Here we're about half an hour from Santa Fe -- I loved this vista of huge sky and mountains in the distance.
Once we were settled into our hotel, we walked about town and enjoyed the cool air and sun, taking a few photos before eating a late lunch.
Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi -- east of the Plaza.
The Loretto Chapel -- a bit of Southwest Gothic just for me!
The Lensic Theater.
It wasn't necessary to awesomize this photo, right? On Thursday I drove down to Albequerque to visit with Caroline Starr Rose, the author of one of my favorite books, May B. Caroline is beautiful, warm, and wise -- it was such a pleasure to hang out with her.
The day before I had the opportunity to breakfast with agent-sister Tiffany Trent, who was in town for a Science Writing conference (how cool is that?). We had a grand old time chatting about writing and Duran Duran, but silly me forgot to take a photo. Great to see you, Tiffany! Can't wait for the Unnaturalists to come out. :)
