PSYCHIC COUNSELING AND SPIRITUAL HEALING
in person/by telephone in Santa Fe, NM 505-982-3294
When I first moved to Santa Fe in the eighties, I took frequent road trips to check out New Mexico and its ancientness. Somehow, I never came across a petroglyph site just a few miles south of Santa Fe, right off Airport Road, that boasts hundreds of petroglyphs in the basalt cliffs, especially of kokopellis and birds.
La Cieneguilla Petroglyph site is 3.5 miles south of 599, marked by a sign and a big parking lot. It’s a steep but short climb and the views are fantastic – 360 degrees! I’ve seen very little of the site so far, but came across a huge cave with a blackened roof from many fires, and a snake petroglyph on the wall outside. Very nice piece of real estate with views overlooking valleys and mountains.
New Mexico Finds:
Santa Fe: The good metaphysical/spiritual book and supply store is The Ark, on Romero Street. 505-988-3709. Nice garden, nice couches, great book and magazine selection, great free talks.
If you’re here in the summer, stop by the Plaza in the evening to dance and hear live music! The bandstand program is changing hands… you can find all the local events in the Santa Fe New Mexican’s Pasatiempo section on Fridays, and the free weekly The Santa Fe Reporter on Wednesdays.
Hikes in Town in Santa Fe
The Dale Ball Trail system has some great trails with mountain views; its at the end of the paved part of Canyon Road and there’s a parking area just where it Cerro Gordo begins. You can also walk up the dirt part of Canyon to the Audubon Society parking lot, where there are more trails.
Petroglyph Park in Albuquerque: The other day I ended up in an extraordinary place that everyone should know about who visits New Mexico, as it’s 25 minutes from the airport, yet centuries apart…what a great way to start a trip, by saying hello to the state’s most ancient self. The place to go is a side-entrance to the Petroglyph Park, found behind a Valvoline station at 9501 Golf Course Road NW. (And there’s a burrito place right there too.) Within moments from stepping through the entrance, the trail opens up to a timeless view of mesas and the high desert. Big boulders on the right leading to a canyon in back are covered with petroglyphs, etched hundreds of years ago by indigenous people. I can’t imagine a quicker way to decompress… http://www.cabq.gov/openspace/petroglyph.html.
Art Museum in Roswell NM
Roswell, New Mexico: Fabulous Modern Art Museum Alert:”…halfway between Marfa and Santa Fe is the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program and their extremely interesting museum, the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art.
Mexico Finds! Food and Mystery
Guanajuato’s Acambaro: The best fruit and nut type candy bars in the world are in Acambaro. They’ve been making “dulces regionales” since 1935 and the store is called “Salvador Tinajero” at #121 Avenida 1 de Mayo. It’s the most elegant little place with great snacks and candy. All over Acambaro there are bakeries saying they make the best bread in the world – I ran into an artist who has a bread museum on a street right off the plaza, and plans a restaurant/tourist attraction too- they’ve been making bread in Acambaro longer than most places on the planet. Be sure to go to the Dinosaur Museum there, filled with mysterious, playful, ancient clay and stone figurines that suggest people and dinosaurs lived together at one time.
