    On a walk-about around Old Town Santa Fe.
    Some wonderful history and architecture.
    Not the best of light but hopefully a group representative of the Old Town.

    Neat images of this place. How old is the church in the second image?

    I have only been through Santa Fe once and that was a very long time ago.

    "San Miguel Mission (Spanish: MisiĆ³n de San Miguel), also known as San Miguel Chapel, is a Spanish colonial mission church in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Built between approximately 1610 and 1626, it is the oldest known church in the continental United States."

    Thanks for making me look it up!! :)

    Very cool Barry. I have spent a lot of time I that old part of Santa Fe. Where is your photo of the miracle staircase? I thought for sure you would have one of that. :)
