SANTA FE, N.M. -- It hardly ever rains in Santa Fe, and when it does, the locals are positively giddy about it.
“Isn’t this weather great,” Victoria, a vendor at the weekend Farmers Market, commented to me. I smiled politely, and thought to myself, “what about the 300 days of sunshine that I keep reading about? I live in Seattle, for goodness sakes! I need every sun ray I can get!”
Lucky for me, Santa Fe is magical regardless of the weather.
Located at 7,000 feet above sea level, Santa Fe is not only the nation’s oldest state capitol but also its highest.
