Breaking Bad Part 1

Scenic from Tent Rocks, NM

Once again I have been occasionally cooking (i.e. NOT cooking). I can't help it! There are so many places to go, see and do! Hello! I've just returned from a long weekend in New Mexico, where incidentally, I saw both Sarah Silverman and Allison Williams, not together but still. Random, I know.

There was a LOT on my weekend agenda including hiking, horseback riding and copious amounts of food and drinks. After arriving in Santa Fe with my travel pal, we headed straight to The Shed for a red chile lunch topped off with a margarita(s). Santa Fe is an excellent food town and the local red and green chile sauces to be found around town are not to be missed.

This is slightly out of order for my actual weekend, but the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument (40 miles SW of Sante Fe near Cochiti) was high on my list of priorities. (And heart breaking as I left my camera OUT OF MY DAY PACK!!! Please make due with my camera phone photos. Oy.) After a volcanic explosion, oh... 6 - 7 million years ago, weathering and erosion have created canyons and tent rocks ripe for exploring. Check. It. Out. One of the best hikes. Evah.
