All good things must come to an end. Until next time southwest US. Until next time! I really enjoyed all of the wonderful things we managed to do and see. I definitely recommend folks who haven't been out that way, to take a trip. The United States is huge and there are so many neat and wonderful things to do throughout the country!

Sadly the time on our trip had to come to an end. We dropped our handy rental car back at the return location and got ourselves together before we took the tram to the airport. I'm always impressed by the southwestern airports and how clean and bright they are!

Location Placed: Governor's Palace, Santa Fe, New Mexico
Date Placed: 10/5/15 at 11:22am
Status: FOUND!!

Sadly one of the last little stops but it was so late that I couldn't actually go in an explore. I definitely want to get back here again to visit. But thankfully the crane was found and I was able to get a little bit more information from the finder about this site!

An email from the finder, Jean. "Found crane 728 at the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe, NM.  This building is the oldest continually occupied public building in America, being established in 1610.
Our camera is charging, so will take a photo tomorrow when we place it somewhere.  I hope it will be at the Bandelier National Monument, but if it rains, we may go on to Georgia O'Keefe's Ghost Ranch.  At any rate, will make sure #728 "Analytical" is placed somewhere safe and dry where some other lucky soul can find it and hopefully notify you and pass it on.

This crane was found and replaced at the Thousand Oaks Library in Thousand Oaks, CA.

So if you've found this crane, let me know!!

The weather was just lovely and the square was bustling with people, business folks out for a stroll, tourists out to enjoy the nice weather and sights. I can see why people come for a visit and decide to stay. I wish I had gotten more time to explore the area and pop into some of the local shops. Just means I'll have to make my way back west to New Mexico again in the future!

I was so bummed that I didn't have enough time to go through this museum. It seemed like it would be such a neat museum. Sadly time didn't permit me to go in, but I always appreciate a good art museum. Santa Fe is such a neat and artsy town, I can only imagine how many amazing pieces there are. If you've ever been there, please tell me about your experience!

Location Placed: Georgia O'Keefe Museum, Santa Fe, New Mexico
Date Placed: 10/5/15 at 10:55am

We opted to go to the Georgia O'Keefe Museum in the morning before we headed back out to Albuquerque. As a well known artist for a certain genre, I was really interested in seeing the different types of pieces that Georgia O'Keefe painted. There was quite a variety of pieces, although most were not really my cup of tea. It was a smaller sized museum, so we went through it a bit quicker than we thought, and so we decided to do a little walking around the town rather than wait a bit longer at the airport.

Santa Fe is such a cool, artsy town. There were a number of artists set up in the garden area of the chapel. We had a little poke around a couple of the stalls. I got a lovely copy of a watercolor picture to remind me of my southwestern road trip. Definitely a nice town to pop into!

It's always a sad time when you're coming to the end of a vacation, especially one as awesome as this. Loretto Chapel had been our last MUST SEE planned thing of the trip, so we wanted to do a little walking around before we figured out our last activity stop before we headed to the airport. We came across Liquid Options, which was somehow attached the to exit of the Loretto Chapel. We didn't go in but for a peek. It seemed like a cute little beverage place though!

722. Reserved

722. Reserved
Definition: (adj) kept specially for a particular purpose or person
Location Placed: Loretto Chapel, Santa Fe, New Mexico

We specifically came to Santa Fe to check out the Loretto Chapel. It is a lovely older chapel with a pretty amazing spiral staircase. It is apparently an architectural mystery as it does not have supports in the middle or on the sides. While it is braced now, it wasn't for the longest time, yet was still able to hold people and function as a staircase. It doesn't hurt that the chapel is quite pretty in its own right. Definitely worth a stop in if you're looking for a pretty and historic site in Santa Fe.

Location Placed: Whoos Donuts, Santa Fe, New Mexico
Date Placed: 10/5/15 at 9:25am

This has to be, hands down, the best donut place I've ever been to. They had a wide variety of donuts, including several I had never heard of before. The staff were extremely pleasant and gave solid recommendations. Additionally, they had some sort of deal on Monday's, which made a sweet breakfast even sweeter. If I ever find myself in Santa Fe again, or you do, I strongly suggest you check them out. Additionally, I think Whoos needs to do a bit of expanding and make their way to the East Coast!
