The Staycation Summer is in Full Bloom.
Staying Close to Home by Day…
Venturing Out for Evening Meals with a Zing of Adventure.
We found a Perfect Spot…Just 10 Miles from Home…For an Adventure primed to Happen.
The Range Café.
I’ve posted about it before. It’s always fun. This time we ventured out to the Original.
In tiny Bernalillo, New Mexico.
A rural enclave nestled between the Rio Grande and the Santa Fe rail tracks.
In the shadow of the Sandia Mountains.
On the ride out we watched for coyotes. Cows and their babes were everywhere.
Riding with the windows down to catch the earthy smells of pinon and cedar.
The Range skillfully mixes Art with All American fare.
The Bathroom Art is Photo-Realism Spectacular…
At The Range, if you’re “Famous Enough”, you can autograph a Plate for the Plate Wall.
There’s even a gift shop for not-quite-tourists.
Filled to Overflowing with Caps in every Color.
Navajo Churro Sheep. Almost life-size. With Goofy Faces everyone can Love.
Sweet Cow Love All Around.
And Luscious New Mexico Landscapes.
Laughing about the Day and sharing a Meal with each other.
Blue Corn Chips and Red Chile Salsa for openers.
Blue Corn Chicken Enchiladas with Beans and Rice.
Turkey with Cranberry Chutney. My favorite.
There’s even time for Dessert…it’s a Vacation!
And a Take-Home Jar of Green Chile Salsa.
Isn’t that what a Mini-Vacation is all about?
