Then we met up with our good friends from college - David and Tracy who have been living in Albuquerque for 17 years (which I still can't believe...) and travelled north to Sante Fe with them. We tried to get to Ojo Calientes mineral water spa and arrived 20 minutes before closing. And bless their hearts, they let us in to soak how ever briefly and it felt wonderful.
For a couple of days, Todd and I spent the time exploring the natural beauty of northern New Mexico. We hiked around the Rio Grande Gorge, visited ancient peublos, drove through the mountains, and even bought a little turquoise. The trip ended to soon and we were back in Madison before we knew it.
Below are about 40 pictures of New Mexico. If you want to look at the whole gallery just double click on the black screen - you'll be taken to my picasa gallery where you can view individual images.

Yesterday, Tracy took us to the Acoma Pueblo. This pueblo is built on top of a sandstone mesa and has been inhabited for several hundred years. They do not allow photos to be taken unless a permit is purchased. Suffice it to say, it was amazing. We took a guided tour of the pueblo with a Acamo named Gary. We saw some beautiful pottery and met some very nice people. Will report more later.

Above are photos we took when we visited Reims in 1998 or so. I can't believe how young the girls are in the photo. If you'd like to see more photos from France and when we lived in Europe visit the first website I ever built in 1999. This website chronicles our life living in holland from 1998-2001. The site still functions nicely and holds up well after 8 years -
