Santa Fe Photo Diary

What do you do when you're sick of 24/7 sunny Los Angeles weather?

Head a bit east towards New Mexico!
Definitely felt weird being in the desert during the winter because it is cooold.

Mostly stayed in the Downtown area - you can get an idea of the type of architecture that's popular in these parts - "Pueblo Revival."

Frito Pie is a dish popular in the Southern, Midwestern, and Southwestern United States, whose basic ingredients are chili, cheese, and corn chips.

It was one of those "you try once" but then "never need to try again" dishes.
