I drove by myself from Colorado Springs to Santa Fe in about 5 hours...it was a nice, peaceful drive.  It was sure great having cruise control!  I stayed with a friend so I do not have much on the hotel scene.  As far as activities, I've really enjoyed the downtown/plaza area with the shops.  It is mixed pleasantly with a touch of history.  The artwork displayed there from the local Native Americans were gorgeous and with much resistance, I saved some money for other goodies.  My friend took me to Tomasitas (sp?) which was an excellent "New Mexican food" restaurant.  I would highly recommend stopping there.  Taos and Fort Union are also excellent stops to see.  Santa Fe is such a charming, interesting place to visit (and possibly live).  Enjoy my friends!

Heads-Up Sidenote:  I did stop at a place in Las Vegas, NM for gas, a bathroom and leg break.  The place that I stopped at was NOT a place I would recommend for women travelers or those with children.  The gentlemen at the counter/owner was very friendly, but the facilities were not at all appealing; actually it made me uneasy.  As you went from the convenient store area to the bathrooms, you passed through a large, open area that seemed to be a mix between his bedroom and a storage room.  It was the last exit for Las Vegas (and if I had gone a couple more, I would have come across an actual Conoco station).  Inside the male/female restroom, there was no toilet paper, no paper towels, bar soap, and his toothbrush and toothpaste on the paper towel dispenser.  The floor was not clean and I could not wait to leave...I made a mad dash to get outta there!

Geology Rocks!

Hiking the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks mountains is an absolute "must do" if you're near Santa Fe! Not only is it a  geological wonder, but when you reach the top you have an unparalleled panoramic view of the New Mexico landscape, the Jemez Mountains and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Plan to go in the morning when it's cool especially during the summer, and go during the week for a less crowded experience. Plan for a half-day hike, and definitely take water with you. The hike is do-able - it took me about 3 hours, a few spots to scramble, the kids I saw there were having a great time. It was about $5 for entry (on the Cochiti reservation).
