The thousand foot La Bajada climb awaited us on our return to the interstate - we'd heard of it but never really put it together with this location. There's a rest area at the top, so no more excuses.
On to Santa Fe, locate our motel but drive on by for lunch at Weck's, where we'd eaten breakfast on previous trips. It was OK, but breakfast is better. Then we took a route we know to Museum Hill. First museum was the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, guarded by this guy:

Bill took his time going though the Here, Now and Always exhibit, featuring history & culture of New Mexico's resident nations. Downstairs was a special exhibit about Apachean groups.
