I Love New Mexico

About all things New Mexican

Posted by admin on June - 4 - 2014 | 7 Comments


I am an early morning walker/runner (mostly walker), and now that it’s nice enough outside to skip the Ft. Marcy treadmills, I find myself on Canyon Road almost every day.


It’s exactly 1.2 miles from the Nambe store parking lot on Paseo de Peralta to Cristo Rey Church, so I generally walk uphill to the church and then run back to my car.


Except for when I’m forced to stop and take photos.


Which is very frequently.


I see something new every day.


There’s nothing like Canyon Road in all of the world. It’s beautiful in any season, but right now, with the riot of spring/summer flowers blooming, it’s amazing.

    The pictures of Canyon Road are beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing with us those of us who can’t get there in person..

    …thanks for the photos, brings back lots of memories, Santa Fe, has special meaning for me and any part of it is nice to see. I don’t live in my favorite state any more, so your web site is like a life line to me, to see the beauty that most, or at least some think as an old desert, but if you look, like you do, you see only beauty. Again, thank you, am looking forward to you next dispatch. …Pete

    So beautiful-makes me want to walk that route next time we are there.

  5. Beautiful photos! Canyon road is such a stunning spot. Can you believe I’ve lived in Albuquerque two years now and just went to Canyon Road for the first time in April? I’m sure it was the first of many trips there.
