Cochiti Lake, NM
We found a nice C.O.E. park at Cochiti Lake (pronounced coach-a-tee), west of Santa Fe, and decided to stay for a week, just to to relax for a few days.
The campground was very scenic, surrounded by mountains.
We spent one day in the historical district of Santa Fe. Although it was interesting, we were somewhat disappointed in its commercialism. We had heard so much about Old Town Santa Fe, and had assumed it would retain much of the old west flavor. Many buildings have been preserved, but a large number now house upscale shops and galleries. We did enjoy the architecture though, had a nice meal, and toured the state capitol.
