SUBMITTED OCTOBER 2014
I have already posted a story on Dal’s blog about my trip to Santa Fe. My husband encouraged me to go out there so I could thank Forrest in person for helping him through the snow on one of his searches. I wrote at the time about having lunch at the San Marcos feed store, but there was much more to the adventure, and there was no way I could add all the pictures I wanted to share and tell everything in great detail as my mind remembered. Jerry suggested I make a video to help capture the experiences and here it is.
After visiting at his home and meeting his wife Peggy, Forrest was kind enough to take a break from his writing and show me around Santa Fe. He showed me the sights and told me about some of the town’s history. I can’t go into great detail or I would need my own blog. 🙂 He showed me parts of Santa Fe that aren’t on any tour guide such as the College of Santa Fe. We visited the Downtown Prescription coffee shop, his former gallery, and can’t forget about having to find the water tower because everything there is hidden. Ha! We also visited the more tourist attraction destinations such as the Loretto Chapel and The Palace of the Governors. All so beautiful and rich in history. The moto there in Santa Fe is mañana. I believe I could get use to that way of life.
