I enjoy a museum or gallery day as much as any art-loving gal does, but when the fall Santa Fe Area Area Studio Tour season begins, I am one happy camper.

The reason is simple: Santa Fe is the perfect home base to explore the variety of artistic expression on any of the incredible tours that surround the City Different.

If you feel the same way, then map one of these terrific art tours into your Santa Fe getaway. This stellar event, September and , kicks off the autumn studio tour season in a big way, as befits an organization encompassing so many artistic villages.

This all-day outing lets you experience great nearby galleries and eclectic studio spaces. The High Road Tour celebrates its 15 th anniversary, and honestly, it gets better with every passing year. Dive right into the flow of art by driving north from Chimayo to visit the historic Santuario. Then, come home a different route via the low road along the Rio Grande.

Be sure to make a degree scan of the stunning views as you choose which treasures will decorate your home with Santa Fe memories. While not as large as some of the other tours, this one is just as rich in artistic expression. The Galisteo Basin has been home to artists for literally thousands of years, as the numerous unexcavated Puebloan ruins in the area demonstrate.

And the Galisteo Studio Tour October gives you a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in the charm and history of this sweet village, 23 miles southwest of Santa Fe. Originally developed as a retirement community with a bent for passive solar design, Eldorado quickly became a residential choice for artists and craftsmen of all persuasions.

The main studio event takes place in May with a tour throughout the community, and the artists of Eldorado also bring their work right into Santa Fe every autumn. The fall show is October at St. Last fall, 58 artists participated, so you can get all of the beauty in one easy-access spot right in the heart of Santa Fe. The first weekend in November heralds the arrival of the Dixon Studio Tour , now in its 32 nd incarnation.

If you get the artistic bug yourself, you can take a creative workshop. Late-autumn travelers wind up the studio tour season with a visit to La Cienega, a mere 10 miles or so south of Santa Fe. This whole valley was once a Spanish land grant, and the water that makes it tree-laden is still part of the attraction. While the leaves may have dropped by Thanksgiving weekend, November December 1, when the studio tour occurs, the timing means you can start your holiday shopping by buying direct from the artists of the La Cienega Studio Tour.

This is one of the smaller tours, but most of the artists on it have lived out here on their acreage for many a long year, and their level of craft has been honed to perfection. You can see that Santa Fe comes by its artistic reputation honestly, and not just because of the many world-class museums and stellar galleries that you find all over this art-loving town.

And since the studio tours are planned over different weekends throughout the year, you can always return for a whole new experience. Its culinary cornucopia is bountiful, and its penchant for innovative cuisine is the stuff of legend. In addition to carne adovada and green chile cheeseburgers, Santa Fe keeps in step with lifestyle and food trends that lean toward the vegetarian-friendly diet.

Chefs here in town are magicians in satisfying those with gluten-sensitivity issues. If you are looking to expand your edible horizons, or simply want to maintain your commitment to a healthier way of eating, Santa Fe will dazzle you with delectable, wholesome options.

Restaurants in town also offer many choices for you to eat with a companion who has dietary aversions or allergies. How about swapping that chorizo for chard, queso for kale, or a side of beef for pickled beets? Prepare to have your taste buds tantalized and treated. I recharge my nutritional batteries by dining in the always Zen, always inspiring, Body Cafe. This place is a wellness empire.

Located inside Body which offers amazing yoga and exercise classes, soulful healing and spa sessions, and a super groovy eco boutique , the cafe succeeds in serving up some of the most inventive and healthful raw, vegan, and veggie dishes that your palette will ever experience.

Not only is this a beautiful dish, but the flavors are divine, and you will leave energized and light on your toes, not looking for the closest place to take a nap.

Try the raw Thai soup for a cool, refreshing twist on a classic. The garden fresh salads, soups, wraps, fresh juices, and awesome desserts are worth sharing. It is hard not to want one of everything.

For those who want extra protein, there is always an option to add organic chicken, wild salmon, cod, tofu, or tempeh to your dish. If you crave salads, there is nowhere more enticing than Vinaigrette. Just walking in the door will let you know that you are about to do something wonderful for your body. This sweet, whimsical little green bistro is tucked away into an alley, but packs a flavor punch into each of the more than 20 copious and gorgeous salads.

It is a challenge to choose just one of these masterpieces, but I adore the colorful and nutrient-packed Omega, made with leafy greens, sweet corn, diced bell pepper, tomato, avocado, red onion, cilantro, and toasted pine nuts all tossed in a fantastic blue cheese vinaigrette. My goat cheese obsession is more than satisfied with The Beet Goes On: There are delish soups try the miso based mushroom stew and a nice selection of yummy sandwiches on the menu, too.

You can also add a variety of meats and seafood to any salad, so the carnivore in your group will be elated. A bit off the beaten path, but very close to town, you will find Sweetwater Harvest Kitchen , a testament to simplicity through the use of wholesome, nourishing ingredients.

There is a feeling of balance, both in the unpretentious and meditative interior, and in the combinations of inventive flavors in the food. The ricotta gives the perfect amount of moisture and sweetness, and the subtle citrus of the lemon is sublime. There are also wonderful egg dishes, oatmeal, and a breakfast burrito to choose from. Indonesian curry, veggie burgers, and Vietnamese style sandwiches are all wonderful lunch choices I can personally recommend, as Sweetwater has all of the bases covered.

The shrimp and grits with green chile are outstanding. Dinner is no less dazzling, and the prix fixe menu is a great way to sample the tasty offerings such as duck, house-made pastas, Pacific cod, beef tacos, and the surprisingly flavorful vegan kale, apple, and cashew tamales. All of these dishes are paired with an inspired soup and salad that will leave both serious carnivores and hardcore vegans satiated and happy.

Be sure to check out the sustainable wine selection served on tap, as well as a handful of craft beers and mead. You may not associate Santa Fe with Indian cuisine, but Raaga brings it. This charming and serene restaurant has a fantastic array of inventive vegetarian and vegan dishes , and the chef is more than willing to accommodate special dietary requests. For an appetizer, be sure to try the vegetable samosas, filled with a yummy blend of curried peas and potatoes. I love that they offer half portions on most entrees, meaning that you can try two dishes that you may be curious about.

In addition to other traditional dishes like tandoori and curries, Raaga offers lamb, chicken, and seafood options. Have a glass of wine or an Indian beer and enjoy your Raaga experience. The research is mounting on the very real health issues that can be caused by consuming the stuff, and luckily Revolution Bakery is paying attention.

For breakfast, they serve local eggs and scrumptious pancakes. During lunch you can choose from savory items, such as soups, salads, and sandwiches, as well as heavenly pizzas the pesto pizza topped with kalamata olives, feta, and roasted red peppers is to die for. The selection of breads and baked confections will beckon you, I can assure you.

Lemon squares, chocolate brownies, fruit and oat bars, cookies, and cupcakes are all made fresh with organic ingredients when possible. Even the most impassioned white flour devotee will be hard pressed to find a difference in consistency and flavor here.

The options for vegetarian dining are endless in Santa Fe, and going meatless hardly means boring. There is something for everyone at your table here, and eating your vegetables has never been so rewarding. Here locals and visitors converge in an eclectic mecca of contemporary art, fresh food, unique shopping, and old-fashioned relaxation. Tourists, artists, businessmen, and more than a few adventure seekers discovered a magical frontier beyond their wildest dreams, courtesy of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway.

And the rest, as they say, is history. Strolling the picturesque district on a coffee-fueled spring morning, I learned that the Santa Fe Railyard District once supported a booming railroad economy, bringing laborers and materials vital to the development of our distinctive central neighborhoods and landmarks.

Decades of economic glory faded into memory, however, as new generations of travelers found Santa Fe by car and eventually airplane. And the once-bustling Railyard fell to neglect and abandon. The park includes an outdoor performance space for movies and concerts, picnic areas in shady groves and gardens, and 5, feet of walk-bike trails that will link to a citywide trail network.

Much like the rail lines of old, the Santa Fe Railyard District offers refreshing, surprising, and unforgettable stops. Open since , the lively restaurant is considered by many the epicenter of the Railyard.

That means mouthwatering traditional chiles rellenos, enchiladas, and stuffed sopaipillas. I confess the smell of fresh tortillas sustained me as I waited in the quick-moving line of hungry patrons. Diners are encouraged to fearlessly dive into local red and green chile, and then toast the culinary adventure with a famous sangria swirl margarita.

Here video, photography, large-scale sculpture, and painting coexist in harmony, as internationally recognized artists make full use of this modern space.

I can proudly say I expanded my artistic horizons by simply wandering through each of the current exhibitions. The video monitor is draped in a disheveled red wig and the face of the artist speaks directly to viewers.

Comical, endearing, and, mildly unsettling. This is a dream facility for diehard DIY-ers, or anyone craving an enlightening hands-on experience. At a sprawling 10, square feet, the fantastic space offers endless hours of creativity via its gallery, artist studios, retail store, wheels and kilns, and massive workshop and teaching space with expert staff. Santa Fe Clay hosts classes year-round for adults and children, and exhibits some of the finest clay artists working in the medium today.

Santa Fe Clay is a dynamic, forward thinking studio. Inspired by the shelves of creations set out to dry, the fresh-out-of-the-kiln pots, and the sheer joy on the faces of workshop participants, I have officially pledged to get my clay groove on. Prepare to be surprised. Housed alongside the east walkway of SITE Santa Fe on Saturdays or inside the Farmers Market Pavilion on Sundays, the respected markets boast fine handmade crafts and artworks ranging from knitted scarves and hats to watercolor landscapes to artisanal teas and body products.

My credit card limit flashed before my eyes as I beheld a gasp-worthy selection of fun retro aprons, imported clothing from India, felt handbags, hand blown glassware, and a virtual trove of jewelry.

Pick up one-of-a-kind gifts here, or self-gifts — my favorites. Several crafters work while you stroll, offering unfiltered glimpses of their works-in-progress. Perhaps the unifying event in the Railyard is the renowned Farmers Market. This market prides itself on strict standards requiring that all food and products be made with local ingredients, and prohibiting reselling.

That means you buy directly from the source.

Property tax deductions are available for military veterans and heads of household. New Mexico has long been an important corridor for trade and migration. The builders of the ruins at Chaco Canyon also created a radiating network of roads from the mysterious settlement. The pre- Columbian trade with Mesoamerican cultures included northbound exotic birds, seashells and copper. Turquoise, pottery, and salt were some of the goods transported south along the Rio Grande.

Present-day New Mexico's pre-Columbian trade is especially remarkable for being undertaken on foot. The north-south trade route later became a path for colonists with horses arriving from New Spain as well as trade and communication. New Mexico's latitude and low passes made it an attractive east-west transportation corridor. The railroads essentially replaced the earlier trails but brought on a population boom. Early transcontinental auto trails later crossed the state bringing more migrants.

The trains connect Albuquerque's population base and central business district to downtown Santa Fe with up to eight roundtrips in a day.

The section of the line running south to Belen is served less frequently. With the rise of rail transportation many settlements grew or were founded and the territory became a tourist destination. Super Chief , the streamlined successor to the Chief ; [] Navajo , an early transcontinental tourist train; and Cavern , a through car operation connecting Clovis and Carlsbad by the early s as train 23—24 , []: Passenger train service once connected nine of New Mexico's present ten most populous cities the exception is Rio Rancho , while today passenger train service connects two: Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

Republicans have traditionally had their strongholds in the eastern and southern parts of the state, the Farmington area, Rio Rancho , and the newly developed areas in the Northwest mesa. Albuquerque's Northeast Heights have historically leaned Republican, but have become a key swing area for Democrats in recent election cycles.

While registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans by nearly ,, New Mexico voters have favored moderate to conservative candidates of both parties at the state and federal levels.

On major political issues, New Mexico abolished its death penalty statute, though not retroactively, effective July 1, This means individuals on New Mexico's Death Row can still be executed. On March 18, , then Governor Bill Richardson signed the law abolishing the death penalty in New Mexico following the assembly and senate vote the week before, thus becoming the 15th U. On gun control , New Mexico arguably has some of the least restrictive firearms laws in the country. State law pre-empts all local gun control ordinances.

Unlike states with strong gun control laws, a New Mexico resident may purchase any firearm deemed legal under federal law. There are no waiting periods under state law for picking up a firearm after it has been purchased, and there are no restrictions on magazine capacity. Additionally, New Mexico allows open carry of a loaded firearm without a permit, and is "shall-issue" for concealed carry permits.

Most of the Mexican immigrants reside in the southern part of the state. Many New Mexicans speak a unique dialect of Spanish.

Which brings me back to this email from history.

He later made a staffing decision that changed American feminist history. At the time, Fred Harvey like everyone else in New Mexico hired African-American men as servers—even though, with post-Civil War racism still high, there were a lot of racial clashes. After one such incident, it was Gable who convinced him to move the men into safer working conditions in the kitchen, and begin importing women from the Midwest to serve.

Within a few years, the growing Harvey system was bringing hundreds of single women by train each year to Western towns where the adult female population was almost exclusively wives and prostitutes.

Harvey Girls were the first national force of working women in America. After Gable did that, nobody seemed to know much about him. In fact, despite decades of Fred Harvey and Santa Fe scholarship, nobody even knew what he looked like. But this woman had found a photo of Gable in a family bible—along with one of his wife Claribel, who was the first of many den mothers who oversaw the dormitories where Harvey Girls slept and tried to protect them from the ravenous local men.

Slowly, a story emerged about an unsung guy who played an intriguing role in the life of Santa Fe. After briefly running the Harvey restaurant in Raton, Gable and his family moved to Santa Fe, where he became deeply involved in territorial politics and business.

He was a warden of the first territorial penitentiary, a member of the territorial House of Representatives and, briefly, the acting mayor of Santa Fe. His wife was a founder of the Santa Fe Women's Board of Trade and Library Association, which established the city's first library and was involved in the first major beautification project for the Plaza in the s.

Before coming to New Mexico, Gable had worked as a postal clerk and a cigar maker. In Santa Fe, he earned a good part of his living in hotels. It was a room hostelry advertised as the first steam-heated and fireproof hotel in town. Gable also dabbled in real estate, saloon-keeping, gambling, even freelance undertaking: In , he landed a government contract to disinter some bodies buried near Fort Union and Fort Cummings and deliver them to the nearest rail stations to be sent home.

During the next two years, he became the primary architect of a plan to dramatically improve fishing and hunting in the territory. He apparently did that job spectacularly well until his beloved wife died in So, Tom Gable was personally responsible for putting over 2 million trout and bass in New Mexico rivers and lakes. Which brings me back to the Tres Lagunas fire.

My wife and I have been visiting the Southwest pretty much yearly since , when a friend of ours bought a cabin at Tres Lagunas—a former hunting lodge compound nine miles above Pecos in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. The private community has its own stocked lakes three of them, hence the name and private access to the Pecos River.

Before I got this email history lesson, I had no idea that the river had originally been stocked with trout by Harvey Girl-inventor Tom Gable. At the time I was learning all this, there was still some question about the future of these trout.

The Tres Lagunas fire had. The fire is now out, but my interest in exploring Fred Harvey-related characters like Gable cannot be extinguished. Fred Harvey and the city of Santa Fe have had a complex relationship for over years. In the late s, the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad completed its goal to replace the entire Santa Fe Trail with rails and change the main transportation from wagons to trains. But for reasons still debated politics, geography, economics, luck , the main rail line bypassed Santa Fe itself and went instead through Lamy on its way to Albuquerque.

Santa Fe itself could be reached only by a branch line from Lamy—which either ruined the city or saved it, depending on your perspective. Then, in —the year Fred Harvey died and his son Ford officially took over—the railroad built a new depot and a large mission-style hotel, The Alvarado, in Albuquerque.

It was unbelievably successful. The Harveys themselves still frequented Santa Fe. But the Harvey business remained based in Albuquerque. In , according to the New Mexican, Tom Gable was one of a handful of prominent Santa Feans who tried to convince Fred Harvey and the railroad to open a hotel in town. Among them was a young Maria Martinez, the famed San Ildefonso potter. The timing was perfect: To meet tourist demand, the company decided to buy a hotel in Santa Fe.

La Fonda would become the headquarters for the Southwest Indian Detours, a new bus and car touring business inspired by the success of bus tours at the Grand Canyon.

Fred Harvey design guru Mary Colter immediately began redecorating. The new La Fonda was the cornerstone of Santa Fe life for the next few decades, drawing artists, Manhattan Project scientists and a steady flow of tourists.

Surprisingly, none of the stories about the rise of La Fonda mention Tom Gable—even though he had invented the popular Harvey Girls and lived nearby.
