Sunday

We awoke on Sunday and hiked at Kasha-Katuwe (Tent Rocks) National Monument, in preparation for the Grand Canyon. I did not have my camera with me, so YOU MUST VISIT Kevin’s Hiking Page which exactly captures this area. (“Kevin’s Hiking Page” is very, very good! Dig around to see the many trails this guy has documented.)

Capping off a nice day hike with a glass of wine was in store. We visited the local winery, Casa RodeƱa, http://www.casarondena.com/ for a wine tasting. Aftwerwards, we selected a wine that we had both enjoyed, ordered glasses and set outside enjoying the Tuscan-like estate and chatting with the vintner, John Calvin.

A setting sun greeted us in Old Town, which was deserted for the evening and made for a magical setting in which to explore its back alleyways of stores and hidden chapels. We stepped inside La Capilla de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe, which looked and felt definitely mysterious in the fading, quiet light, but did not see the weeping ghost.
