Samantha Brown's Places to Love

When ordering a breakfast burrito in Santa Fe, you must specify red, green or Christmas, which is a combination of these two spicy chile pepper sauces. Samantha finds this out quickly at the popular Tia Sophia's, as she meets the renowned cartoonist, Ricardo Cate, whose Native American inspired cartoons combine politics with humor. From there, Samantha visits the New Mexico Capitol Art Collection, where the works of New Mexico artists are on display at the State Capitol Legislature building for all to experience. Hiking is a hugely popular activity, as Samantha often likes to do when returning to Santa Fe and does so as she climbs to the peak of Dale Ball Trail number 9 and enjoys the glorious views overlooking the entire city. From hiking to navigating the Margarita Trail, Samantha gets her book stamped at the legendary Cowgirl BBQ, where she enjoys their signature margarita while listening to some live western-folk music. A new day always rises and what not a better place than Ten Thousand Waves, where Samantha enjoys a therapeutic massage at this highly touted relaxation institution. Feeling quite rested, Samantha gets suddenly thrown in the immersive surreal world of Meow Wolf, where audiences are transported from creative art experiences into fantastic realms. Escaping through a refrigerator, Samantha arrives at a local favorite, Tomasita's, where she learns about the restaurant's 40-year history and how to make a Santa Fe style enchilada. Concluding her trip, Samantha makes a visit to the historic La Fonda On The Plaza and meets two of the original Harvey Girls, who are twin sisters in their 80's that worked prestigious positions at La Fonda during the 50's for the entrepreneur, Fred Harvey.
