The Remarkable Women of Taos
There have been a lot of noteworthy women in New Mexico. Taos is no exception. The historic town north of Santa Fe town has designated 2012 as the year of The Remarkable Women of Taos. The year-long celebration honors both historic and contemporary women. The town’s website notes, “Taken together their stories provide a sampling of the breadth and depth of the remarkable women who call Taos home, who experience the physical, and sometimes ineffable, influence of the land and of the generations who have inhabited it.” Santa Fe Travelers plans some posts honoring some of these remarkable women.

Santa Fe Treasures
The Santa Fe area has many treasures: people places, buildings and more. We will do a series of posts called Santa Fe Treasures during 2012. We’ll be writing about ones we know and looking for new ones to share with our readers. We are excited about the journey of discovery awaiting us as we search for these.

Our travel bucket list
Almost everyone has places they want to travel to before they kick the proverbial bucket. One of our first 2012 posts will make our list public, for better or for worse.

Native American archeological sites
New Mexico and the southwest are home to many ancestral Native American sites, some dating back over 1,000 years. We plan to travel to and write about some of these. We hope to include a few of the well known ones: Chaco Canyon in New Mexico, Mesa Verde in Colorado and Canyon de Chelly in Arizona. We also hope to visit some that are not as well known.

Shopping Santa Fe Style
The City Different
has world-class shopping. When it comes to Native American jewelry, art and artifacts, there is no better place to find world renowned artists and unique items. The same goes for Spanish Colonial Art. Our series of posts will explore shops and galleries specializing in clothing, jewelry, home furnishings and accessories, art and more.

This is just the beginning. We think of new things to write every day. Stay tuned and enjoy our blog. If you are planning some 2012 Santa Fe travel or there’s something you want to know about Santa Fe, let us know. We’re always open to reader suggestions. We wish you a Happy New Year and happy reading.

    This is a nice list - I’ve considered making a travel bucket list for several months now, but have a terrible time whittling it down to something manageable (and, ahem, readable!).

    I’d love to hear about the Native American archeological sites. I’m heading to the Southwest for the first time ever this spring, and these are a must-see for me.

      We have so many more on our bucket list than will show up. I whittled it down to 10. The challenge is getting photos as we haven’t been to any of them.
      I hope we get to the archeological sites before you get out here. What states are you traveling to?

    I was not really looking forward to anything when I first opened this post up, now I am looking forward to five things this year. Can’t wait to hear about it.

      I’m excited about this, too. It will take a while to get through these, maybe the whole year. Hope your patient!
