Las Palomas B abd B Inn room

Free bus from Chama to Espanola, then to Santa Fe. It also went through Abiquiu--I could have gone on a Georgia O'Keeffe home tour. Next time. I was disgorged in the middle of downtown Santa Fe, not knowing where I was. I was treating myself after finishing the New Mexico section of the trail with a stay in Santa Fe. I called Las Palomas Inn to make a reservation for tonite--they guided me over to the Inn. Great spot--my room has a large dormer window on the top floor of an old house that looks out on cottonwoods. I went to the Georgia O'Keeffe museum. Ansel Adams pics and O'Keeffe's paintings of their time in Hawaii. I'm not a big fan of her Hawaii paintings--I love her arid land stuff better. I was craving a salad, so went to "Vinaigrette" restaurant after the recommendation of the Inn owner. Perfect. Went to dinner at Cowgirl's--had an amazing double Las Cumbres IPA--very good and unusual. The bitter hops flavor was balanced with fruity aromatic hops--usually the counterbalance for the bitter hops is the sweeter, more full bodied malt flavor. I sat at a "community" table in the patio and made the acquaintance of Brian and Chris from Santa Fe having their ritual post 5 K run beer and nachos. We talked about various--land in Taos, New Mexico weather. They picked up my dinner tab! I told them that they were now trail angels, and they were amused about having the term "angel" associated with their names, but unexpected angels are the best kind.
