“New Mexico is really pet friendly!” I’ve heard that dozens of times, and I was anxious to see for myself. About two weeks ago, we and the dogs headed south from Colorado and I crossed into New Mexico for the first time in my life. I was not disappointed.
The Philmont Boy Scout Ranch was our first stop. Some forty years ago Rod took a three-week trip with his troop from Pennsylvania to hike and camp at Philmont. It was great re-living those memories with him, even if his ego was a little dented when we discovered camping gear from his era in the museum!
We took the scenic route through Cimarron Canyon to Taos and spent the afternoon walking around the Plaza, enjoying lunch on the pet-friendly patio at the Bent Street Cafe & Deli, and making friends at the local pet supply store, Puss ‘n Pooch.
And then we got to Santa Fe. Immediately the origins of the pet friendly heralds became apparent!
Santa Fe is very walkable and bursting with history, architecture, and art. It’s the perfect kind of place to see with your dog – and dogs were out in force!
And that’s all I’m going to tell you about the super-pet-friendly Santa Fe.
Well, that’s not exactly true …
Though only one of us is a baby boomer (and he shall remain nameless :-)), we were invited by Donna Hull to guest post on her blog, My Itchy Travel Feet – The Baby Boomer’s Guide to Travel. Santa Fe felt like a perfect fit for her readers, so jump over and read about our pet friendly day in Santa Fe!
It took four long years, but we finally got back to do a little more sniffing around Santa Fe. Read about our most recent pet friendly finds here!
