Then and Now: 1500s to 2017
Remember when we had to walk on foot from Mexico to Santa Fe? Me either, because the longest I had to walk was a mile when buses couldn't make it up my hill during winter in middle school, and that's the farthest I'll ever walk! If you're like me and have knowingly romanticized the past, don't miss the El Camino Real Trade Fair at the Gutierrez-Hubble House this Saturday, Oct. 14. From 10am to 4pm, you can learn about the El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro stemming from central Mexico leading the way to Santa Fe and all the hardships, conquests and tall tales through reenactments, educational sessions and an aparejo mule packing demonstration. Even if that's not exactly your thing, you can still enjoy live entertainment, browse the work of local artisans and the turquoise trunk show. There's even going to be Navajo rug authentications on site! (Rini Grammer)
