Santa Fe's Railyard Park

I decided to head out of the mountains instead of going for a hike this morning. My decision turned out to be a good one as the daily, afternoon rains came early today. It was gray with lightning in the mountains by about 11. I headed into town to get some breakfast and run some other errands. I had some time to kill before the stores I needed to visit opened and so I finally got to check out the Railyard Park. It is a very interesting place, a combination playground, festival ground, botanical garden, community center, garden, and historical site. To me, it is what an urban park should be.

 I left the park to head to the plaza downtown and passed this interesting church.
