Tangle U 2015 - Santa Fe Part Two

In yesterday's post (link here) I wrote about attending this year's Tangle U event in Santa Fe.  Santa Fe is such a neat artist's town with so much history.  This post is just sharing pictures of some our touring in and around much fun!

This was our Hotel: The Loretto
Absolutely beautiful and within walking distance of the plaza
and lots of good shopping and restaurants

The view outside of our window (which opened)
of the back of the chapel at Loretto

miraculous stairway

A Quinceañera:
  This constitutes a ceremony on a
 girl’s fifteenth birthday to mark her  passage to womanhood,
to give thanks to God for his blessings,
 and to present a young woman to the community.
