VIDEO: New Mexication

Posted In: Destinations, Video

Do you believe in miracles? Sometimes in our RV travels, we come across things that cannot be easily explained. That was the case a few weeks ago in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where we explored the Loretto Chapel and its “miraculous staircase.”

As you’ll see in the video, this hand built wooden staircase is a stunning architectural achievement. It just seems to hover in mid-air with no lateral or vertical support. It’s the work of a mysterious carpenter, who accepted neither credit nor payment upon its completion.

Is it a miracle? Santa Fe seems like a place where miracles are possible. There’s something about this cozy town of about 70,000 residents town that just feels right. It’s not too big, not too small. It’s just right.

There’s a palpable sense of history here. Santa Fe is one of the oldest towns in the United States. When you’re strolling through the historic district, you just get a sense of the past. Real life Western legends walked these streets, and one suspects their ghosts still watch over the place.

Sure, like every other city, the outskirts of town has its fair share of shopping malls and chain restaurants. But the old town really boasts the character of a “new” Mexico. The best of the past is preserved, and complemented by a vibrant music and artistic scene.

And then there’s the food. The local cuisine is steeped in green chile. Even for a spice-and-pepper aficionado like myself, it can be blazing hot. So you’ll appreciate a cold brew to wash it down.

As for that staircase? If it’s not a miracle, I’m not sure what to call it.
