After resting for a bit at the hotel, we drove to the Santa Fe Botanical Garden to see a holiday display called GLOW. It was described as “an artful illumination of nature”, but I was not sure exactly what to expect. The adult tickets were $10 and kids 12 and under were free.
We arrived around 5 p.m., so there was still some daylight.
There were a lot cozy conversation spots and creative lighting.
I believe they were burning pinon wood.
Loved the luminarias! They were everywhere in New Mexico, even on top of the regional hospital.
This art installation changed colors every few seconds.
This was a fun little local event to check out. They were selling hot chocolate, but n had been ODing on hot chocolate throughout our vacation, so we skipped it. There was also a musician scheduled to perform, but we did not want to stay that late…D had college football to watch at the hotel!
Our appetites still were not back to normal, so we just made a quick stop at Panda Express on the way back to the hotel. Sorry Santa Fe, we just were not up to fully exploring you; I feel like we did not experience all that you have to offer.
