I first visited Santa Fe, New Mexico as a side trip while on business in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1995 and still recall driving into the center of town late in the afternoon just as a delicate veil of early winter snow began to thinly blanket the adobe structures in the central plaza of the oldest capital in this nation. It was magical enough for me to return to this amazing place to be reminded again and again of the inexplicable spirituality that shrouds one as he or she drives from Santa Fe … along the High road to Taos … through small villages ... Chimayo, Las Trampas … past aging adobe mission churches and on to the 12th century Pueblos of Taos. No words could ever adequately capture the essence of this part of the country … perhaps that’s why it is called the “land of enchantment.”
