Halfway through our roadtrip we made a stop in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was one of the highlights of the trip for me. I loved all the adobe houses with bright colored doors. We stayed at an Airbnb on Canyon Rd, which happens to be where all the high-brow art galleries are located. We walked along the sprawling mess of galleries packed in along this tiny, sidewalk-less road.
Santa Fe also is home to a ton of museums. We of course went to the Georgia O'Keefe museum. But the big reason I wanted to stop in Santa Fe at all was to see the International Museum of Folk Art, which is mostly comprised of folk art from around the word collected by Alexander and Susan Girard. The wing of the museum housing their collection is absolutely overwheleming, and I will be curating a separate post to talk more about that. Other highlights of Santa Fe were seeing the collection of authentic, historical Navajo textiles at Shiprock Santa Fe and eating as much New Mexican food as we could handle.
