Santa Fe isn’t cold enough.
I was sitting down for lunch at a conference in Santa Fe as a snow storm settled on the town when someone asked me how the cold here compared to the cold back home. I told her it wasn’t cold enough here.
After the laughter, I explained that I had stepped in a puddle of melted snow that morning, the result being that my foot was cold and wet. This was not the sort of thing I had to worry about in Barrow, at least not for much of the year.
Santa Fe just isn’t cold enough.
Oh but it’s a beautiful city for a walk, even with the wet snow that melts around your feet and makes them wet.
Quite a few of these murals are from a sort of youth center, called Warehouse 21.
In other news, I added a couple pics to the photo-gallery for the Institute of American Indian Arts, in Santa Fe.

I love Santa Fe but since I hate cold weather vastly prefer Santa Fe in the warmer months. In fact, I am headed to Albuquerque next Friday for a couple of days. Have to get my New Mexico fix.

Forgot to add that you could go to Taos–it is colder than Santa Fe.
I think I’ll make it out there in May, and hopefully cold won’t be an issue at all at that time. 🙂
How do you find so many murals? Never seen snow over Santa Fe. A bit in ABQ, never there. Did you ride the train up there?
At this point they catch my eye rather easily, plus I like to walk around and get lost in a city. It’s damned easy to get lost in Santa Fe. Someone told me the best way to describe the city streets was that this is what would happen if you gave a kid a crayon and said, ‘go’!
lol…the warmer the better for me thanks!
Wonderful murals…it is apparent the artists are a proud group.
Lots warmer is good.
This is a very optimistic post ; ) thank you
I was in a very good mood. Thank you for helping me to keep it going.
Hi I hope you like Awards. There’s one waiting for you on my blog for being a Very Inspiring Blogger . Cheers musicgal 2012
You are very kind, Musicgal. Thank you very much.
Your most welcome 🙂
Good God (not an expression I am prone to), those photos are gorgeous. Especially the sunlight lighting up the clouds on the train station one- a touch of the divine there, I think.
Thank you, Erika. Good to see you back.

Hi Daniel. Have enjoyed your photos–will return for some more posts. Thanks for visiting my blog in hot and sunny Melbourne, Australia!
I was trying to soak up some heat, an effort I will repeat from time to time. Thanks for checking my own blog out.
The weiner dog is my favorite! Great photos!

Thanks for the tour yet I am surprised at the mural art in Santa Fe–rather demonic and troubling. Guess this town has changed much since the 1990’s and not for the better.
I’m guessing at least some of those demons are the youth center. It strikes me as the sort of thing young men like to paint.
There are certainly some talented artists around Santa Fe. i think it is great that there is some kind of outlet for young artists and that the town encourages their expression.
Sante Fe has been on our “to visit” list for a while – your photos remind me why! Thanks for visiting.
I didn’t even think New Mexico had snow. Looks really good, though,
Really amazing murals. I love the American Indian ones and the bird one! You will soon get used to the “less cold” winter… By the way, thank you for visiting my blog and please come again!

We have family in Santa Fe and used to vacation there every summer. I’ve never seen it in winter, someday hopefully I can ski Taos! Lovely pix!
I write this from Santa Fe — where it’s a balmy 28º. You should’ve visited when it was -18º. (Yes, there is a negative in front of that 18.) We remember it well — two water pipes burst in our house. Glad you enjoyed the “City Different” which is full of public art and great restaurants. Come back any time — in the summer.

I just drove through Santa Fe the other day! Now you’ve convinced me to stop and look around on my way back. 🙂
That is some incredible graffitti art.
Great set, wish I had known more about the are when we passed through this past July. Would liked to have spent a day exploring before heading home bound.

Love your photos. Santa Fe is beautiful. My favorite drive though is from Sedona to Flagstaff Arizona going up the switchbacks. Minda Webber
