As the rain slowly stopped, we were able to see more of the Siarra Blanca mountain range. Then, we passed thru the Valley of Fires.
Look at the worm holes in this candle holder. I intended on buying it before I left, but completely forgot! Oh well, I will see plenty in a couple of weeks at the antique show in Warrenton. Now on to Corrales, where we will spend the night, before we head into Santa Fe.

The Veranda Inn Historic Inn Bed & Breakfast Fort Davis, Texas
A few shots more..this time of the beautiful redbud trees blooming in the courtyard of The Veranda. I didn't want to leave.
We really live in a beautiful country, AND I feel so blessed to live in the wonderful state of Texas.

Today we walked around the historic square, taking in all the sights & sounds of downtown Santa Fe, which included visiting the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. I also went into Mama's Minerals, a cool little bead shop; as well as a great stamp shop called StampaFe Art Stamps. They had a great selection of Frida stamps!
I have alot of photos that I have taken along the road on our way to Santa Fe, and will share them with you when I return home. We have traveled almost 1,300 miles on this trip, and it has been a blast.
Last night I added a soldered charm of my little muse to my Bead Fest necklace. She is always with me. I've told you before, her picture sits on my desk in my work space at home. If I believed in good luck, she would be my lucky charm. But, I don't. I do believe in blessings, and this trip is one for me. My little muse is just along for the ride.
I look forward to the new techniques I will be learning on this trip, and pray I will always be a teachable student. I will share all the details when I get home, you can be sure!
