and the wartime contributions of Santa Fe's citizens.
From there we headed to the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi.
There were a lot of interesting things to look at both inside and outside of the church.
We ate lunch at a nearby Burrito joint and went back to the history museum for one more exhibit on the Saint John's book. The book was beautifully illustrated, but I felt it had little to do with the history of New Mexico. From the History museum, Noelle and I headed just across the street to the New Mexico Museum of Art. There were a lot of interesting art pieces inside, including a few interesting paintings by Georgia O'Keefe. We spent a couple hours perusing the museum before we headed outside to walk around and enjoy the public street art.
We ended up walking up Canyon Road and pas the many art galleries. They all seemed way out of our price range and so we enjoyed the outdoor art instead of going inside.
It's best known for its "miraculous staircase" which was supposedly built by a mystery carpenter who took no money for his services and whose construction defies the laws of physics.
To me it looks like it was carved out of a single piece of wood. I guess I'm a bit of a skeptic.
We ended our day with another hike up Martyr's Hill
and the ruins of the Old Fort Marcy where last summer I found some interesting artifacts including pottery and chert flakes.
