Day 15: Rest Day in Santa Fe, NM


What an enjoyable rest day in Santa Fe, NM.   We enjoyed our breakfast at the hotel with Mike and visiting wife Dianna.


Then we were off to the Lorretto Chapel to view the " Miraculous Staircase" said to have been built by a mysterious stranger that is believed to have been St. Joseph himself.  The self supporting stairs astounds even modern craftsmen today having been built with only simple carpenter tools and no nails in 1878.  It was truly breathtaking.









We then enjoyed our relaxing walk in the Santa Fe Plaza with Mike and Rich and took in the peaceful southwestern atmosphere.
