Last Sunday, my daughter posted on Facebook that she was headed to Santa Fe on the Railrunner with a plan to spend her last day of summer being a total tourist before classes began at UNM.  I posted back “May I join you?  Lunch, maybe?”  And before she could reply in the affirmative, I was on the road. Yes, it’s a 2 hour and 45 minute drive.  Yes, I probably needed to spend a day pulling grassburrs out of the flower beds.  Yes, I probably could have saved the gas money for a longer trip elsewhere.   But some days you just have  [ Read More ]

I love the restaurant at the St. James Hotel in Cimarron. I love that I can get in my car in Logan with my boyfriend and be in Red River in less than three hours. And I love that this past Friday, on the way to spend half-price weekend in Red River (half price on lodging, ski lift tickets, rentals, etc. – it’s a tradition in Red River, and a mighty fine one at that!), Dave suggested that we stop at the St. James in Cimarron and have my belated birthday dinner.
