Today I overheard some older tourists on Canyon Road talking about how it appeared that Canyon Road was in disrepair, “things are falling apart and they’ve let the weeds just overtake everything.” I had to stop and laugh to myself and think ‘welcome to New Mexico’ in general.
I was reminded that, that is one of the major qualities that I love about not only Santa Fe but New Mexico- it’s a little over grown, a little dated and the adobe is cracked in some places. It’s total charm though if you look at it the right way. I’m happy that I live in a historic city that isn’t perfectly manicured.
Here a few shots from my afternoon walk today that I thought captured a little bit of the beauty of summer in Santa Fe. (weeds and all)
