Visiting artisans after Santa Fe.

We had a great time in Santa Fe. Visited an amazing museum of contemporary native art, the museum at the governor's palace, the Loretto chapel, and the Cathedral. We walked about, had delicious lunches and even ice cream. Now that's camping!  Artisans now. Tomorrow will be a busy day of service.

Heading to bed

Tomorrow is Santa Fe. We send love and hugs. 

Watching the process


Storyteller figurines



Students (the coyotes) are cleaning the beach of driftwood and rocks. The Pikas are at the Cochiti school working collaboratively with the eighth grade there. The Owls are involved in leadership studies. 

The morning at tent rocks was stunningly beautiful. The kids idenified and sketched  several plants and trees. The view from the top was amazing. 

The temps are perfect. It's slightly cloudy.

Heading to our sleeping bags

We enjoyed artisans, had dinner, sang, played cards and reflected. We're going to sleep early because we have an early wake up. We send love and hugs to our families.
