The Welcome to New Mexico sign says it all.
In Santa Fe there were celebrating the 300th Fiesta with music, dancing, a parade, and tons of food vendors.
Lucky for us we booked some service at Sandia BMW on the day they had a big event on. The local university students let us try out their formula 1 car. The dealership also had Chris “Teach” Mc Neil there putting on stunt riding shows and he even signed my bike “when in doubt throttle out”.
Taking the scenic route from Albuquerque to Santa Fe over the Jemez Mountains we stopped at the Bandelier National Monument. They had had a huge flash flood last year and there were a lot of sand bags still there.
Now we are off to chase the Dragon.
