I awoke at 6 and went for a hike on the Black Canyon loop, which begins just a few steps from my campsite.
And the view from the top is worth it, especially as the sun rose.
After my hike I brought my friend, and fellow bass player, Miles up to the campsite for breakfast, and he then took me on a fabulous tour of Santa Fe Opera. To give you an idea of what an amazing place this is, this is the view from the parking lot (no fancy filters applied – it’s just that beautiful):
…and here it is.
Miles even showed me his paver, hidden by plantings 🙂
Another memorable spot in Santa Fe. Tonight I go to the “Salome” dress rehearsal, and tomorrow is a spa afternoon at Ten Thousand Waves.
