One of the towns is Madrid, which has seen a revival in funky shops, if nothing else. We had lunch at the town's most notable eating and drinking establishment, the Mine Shaft Tavern, which had a little stage for entertainment and a more than interesting bar.
After lunch we did a little browsing in the town's shops, which featured some interesting doorways.
Further on toward Santa Fe, we visited another town, Cerrillos. This town, which sits about a mile to the west of the highway, has not seen appreciable recovery yet. Here are a few random shots from our drive through the town.
And then it was on to Santa Fe.
