Turquoise Trail Scenic Byway

The scenic byway runs from Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The drive is approximately 50 miles along Highway 14. A wildfire north of Santa Fe created some haze today , but a cool front blew in;  it was a pleasant 78 degrees. What a reprieve after the 100 plus temps yesterday!


saw this cacti blooming all along the roadside



This is the town of Madrid along the byway; it was once a mining town, but  now thrives as an artsy community

Yep, mailboxes, something that is fading from society; you don't see them much anymore.  Some people got creative...of course it is an art community.  All the shopkeepers were very sweet people.

Shoes on the line means someone is walking barefoot


Nice garden in front of a gallery.
