Remember that elk hunt The Carnivore went on last October? Well, we got a call a few weeks ago that his mount was ready to be picked up. He’s been schmoozing me for weeks to let him hang that thing in our living room, and this weekend was no exception!
We spent a few days exploring northen New Mexico before picking up his new friend, and it was just as magical as I had hoped. Since I’m scrambling to write this on my lunch break, I leave you with pictures…
We spent our first night at Ojo Caliente.
We soaked in the mineral springs.
And ate really, really well.
Next stop – Santa Fe.
I treated Santa Fe basically as a food tour. I had more places I wanted to eat than we had time for, so we scheduled around our stomachs. I’ll just tell you about my favorite meal… Huevos Rancheros from Cafe Pasqual’s. OMG. Eat there. And get the combo sauces.
Shopped at the Palace of the Governors…
After spending a few days in Rio Rancho with family, it was finally time to pick up the animal. Did I mention Chase and his cousin Heath both got elk?!My husband is so proud he can hardly stand it. Check out that grin.
The 9 hour drive home was an interesting one. We stopped in Amarillo to look at the Cadillacs.
For completely separate reasons, we both had a FABULOUS weekend.
I will do another post soon of where we stayed, ate, and things to do.
