The main reason that it was great is that we both had Saturday and Sunday off, so we got two whole days to adventure together. We decided to set off toward the wilderness on Saturday and get our hiking on. Here is what we saw at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument:
|Awesome rock formations|
|Sweeeeeeet elevated tree roots|
|Our lunch spot! We were a little matchy that day...|
Another awesome thing that we did on Saturday: we saw a free circus performance in the park! There's an organization here called Wise Fool that teaches theater and circus arts, and they just started performing a show called See Saw, complete with a custom-made 20-ish feet tall see saw. Bellinghamsters reading this blog know that the Bellingham Circus Guild is pretty great, so Eric and I have high standards in regards to community circus performances. This one blew us out of the park! (Get it, because we were in a park?) Actually, to continue with that pun, it was a really windy evening, and these performers were climbing around on this huge metal sculpture with ropes and fabric billowing out behind them. It was a good taste of the Santa Fe quirkiness that we are learning to know and love.
Our cat is still the best cat in the world.

And finally, THANK YOU to everyone who has sent us snail mail since we moved here! It is so nice to get postcards and notes from all our great friends and family and makes us feel right at home. Lots of gratitude to all!
Love, Marie and Eric
