Day 16, Wednesday June 16th - Around Santa Fe

Rats!  Missed Forrest again - but we do get to see him tomorrow.  We went to the International Folk Art Museum on Museum Hill - very interesting, especially with the new exhibit on cochineal red dye.  Those little bugs sure have a lot of uses and made some folks a lot of money.  Meanwhile, storms were already brewing in the mountains.

Went downtown and ate at someplace new to us, Tia Sophia's.  Yum.  Then toured the Museum of Contemporary Indian Art, where the exhibits often have something to say.  Sat at the Plaza for a while, then headed back to the hotel.

Tomorrow, after the FF visit, we head for Albuquerque, possibly via the Rancho de las Golondrinas, a living history ranch similar to Missouri Town 1855 near KC.  A couple of museums in ABQ, dinner w/ friend Larry Harrah, and a stay at the HIE Eubank.   We're up to 2750 miles for the trip.
