We went to the Santa Clara Corn Festival today. The Indians from that particular Pueblo dress in their traditional garb and do dances. There is drumming and it is a spiritual occasion. It was a hot day and I didn’t have an umbrella…so I baked a bit. We were there for about 5 1/2 hours…whew! You’re not allowed to take photos…in fact I witnessed the security guards taking away a couple of the attendees cameras. Kathy had met one of the Indian women who invited us to have lunch, so we located her home and enjoyed dining with them.

After cleaning up at the rental from the hot and dusty day, we walked along Canyon Drive, where all of the upscale art galleries are and enjoyed the variety of creativity that is alive in Santa Fe. You’re not allowed to take photos inside…so I took them of the outdoor works of art…
As we were walking from gallery to gallery…something beautiful to look at everywhere…I looked up at this tree and found more beauty!
That evening we went to the famous outdoor “Santa Fe Opera“. We had standing room tickets, but since they didn’t sell out, they let us sit down. The backdrop of the setting sun was gorgeous. This particular opera, “Wozzeck”, wasn’t very good…but I enjoyed it anyway!
