City of Soft Edges
We used the bus system yesterday again to get downtown and visit the Georgia O'Keefe museum. Although Wisconsin born, she adopted Santa Fe later in life as her hometown area. Many of her works are in big city museums but there is enough here to get a feeling for it. There are also a lot of photos of her and her exploration of northern New Mexico. We then took a shuttle tour around the historical district. I love the adobe architecture because of its warm colors and soft edges.
We returned to the campground to get some laundry caught up and plan our next stop. The photo is of the laundry and shower house with blooming forsythia to the side. Although this campground is very pleasant, it is in town, as have been most of recent stops and we are missing real camping. We had hoped to stay at Palo Duro State Park in Texas the next couple of nights but, "he who hesitates is lost" and there are no spots available. So we will be in another private campground in Canyon, Texas so we can at least explore the park before we head homeward.

Georgia may have some naughty history....but I have been attracted to several cheap prints, have them hanging.....and visited the area with those distant bluish mountains, adobe homes, simple gardens and paths....touches a part of us and mixes well with F Loyd Wright.....Santa Fe, Tuscon, Albuquerque....Mesa Verde...and fishing in the RIO GRANDE...amazing how different life is in the corners of the world.....you are camping far from Iowa........
