Sante Fe

Here is the rest of Sante Fe, the sight seeing that is.

The architecture out in New Mexico is far different than Maryland. Lots of stucco and sandstone.

This door I found on the side of a building. It looks like a door that you'd have to say "Open Sesame" to open it.

Believe it or not, this is a parking garage. Yeah, with pretty vines and a nice patterned door.

This is the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi.

A statue of Kateri Tekawitha, the first sainted Native American, stood outside the cathedral. I was so happy to recognize who she was immediately since I had recently read about her in the Sacred Heart calendar.

Lighting a candle and saying a little prayer.

Just a bit of graffiti of an angry bird?

And the bags on top of this building is unique to winter in New Mexico. They take tea lights and put them into paper bags and fill them with sand. At night they light each bag and there's a golden light shining from each bag around the house.

It's called Luminaria and this is what it looks like at night.
