On The Way To Santa Fe

Alley, Santa Fe, New Mexico

I’m very excited.

This September, during our biennial trip back to the U.S. to see family and friends, I’ll be doing something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, a photo journey along the Santa Fe trail.

It shouldn’t be too surprising that someone who, along with his adventurous wife, uprooted everything to move halfway around the world would be intrigued by people who have done the same throughout history.

The Santa Fe Trail, the Spanish Trail, the Oregon Trail, Route 66… they’ve all held a special place in my imagination, fueled by some of my favorite books like Travels With Charley, The Innocents Abroad, Chasing Che, and South of Haunted Dreams.

I’ve been spending some time planning my upcoming journey along the 1800’s trade route and decided to reach out in this newsletter with a little request for anyone who lives near the historic trail: do you know of any interesting out-of-the way places on the route, interesting people, or quirky community festivals? I’d love to hear about them! Please drop me a line and let me know.

I’m also planning on giving a live presentation while I'm in the States at New Mexico Highlands University about my images of churches here in Georgia. (It’s somewhat fitting that these two events should be on the same trip since Highlands University is in Las Vegas, New Mexico, an important commercial stop on the Santa Fe Trail.)

I’ll be sharing more information on both in upcoming newsletters, and I hope you’ll join me next week for more exploring in Tbilisi!
