S: Spring Break
1: Santa Fe | The City of Santa Fe was originally occupied by a number of Pueblo Indian villages with founding dates between 1050 to 1150. One of the earliest known settlements in what today is downtown Santa Fe came sometime after 900 C.E. A Native American group built a cluster of homes that centered around the site of today’s Plaza and spread for half a mile to the south and west; the village was called Ogapoge.
2: “Mah-Waan, Mah-Waan” For us hospitality is an honored tradition. In this spirit we welcome you to Santa Fe’s only Native American Owned hotel. Located in Historic Downtown Santa Fe and in the heart of the new Guadalupe Railyard District with museums, galleries, shops and restaurants just outside our door.
4: Southwest Regional Office | The foundations of the main building are stone. The battered adobe walls vary from 4.9 to 3 feet thick and are finished with cement stucco. The flat roof sections are edged with parapets and drained with canales (scuppers) that extend out from the exterior walls. The roof is supported by vigas (peeled log roof beams) and hewn squared beams. Viga ends protrude from the exterior walls. Most of the windows are multi-light double hung type, capped with hewn lintels. Floors in the lobby/conference room wing are varnished flagstone. The floors of the portal surrounding the patio are also flagstone.
6: The Southwest Regional Office building of the National Park Service is on a site of just over eight acres at a bend in Old Santa Fe Trail.
8: The entire feeling of the building is Spanish Colonial. The building is an adobe structure of 24,000 square feet, built with an irregular plan around a central patio. The layout and room configuration are romantically reminiscent of a mission compound. The architecturally dominant section of the building is two stories in height and houses the impressive entrance, the lobby, the upstairs offices for the regional directorate, and some offices tucked back toward the central patio.
10: more like it used to be than it ever was | jackalope | march 2008
11: The jackalope is the product of a male jackrabbit and a female antelope. Jackalopes possess an uncanny ability to mimic human sounds. In the Old West, when cowboys would gather by their campfires to sing at night, jackalopes would frequently be heard singing back, mimicking the voices of the cowboys. Jackalopes become especially vocal before thunderstorms, perhaps because they mate only when lightning flashes—or so it is theorized—which explains the rarity of this species.
13: Darby, a self-made entrepreneur, grew up one of fifteen children in Richwood, West Virginia. A natural salesman, it could be that McQuade inherited his ambition and pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps mentality from his coal-mining father, who worked his way up to become the president of the company. Or he could have gotten his drive from his mother, who ran for U.S. Congress twice—as if raising fifteen children wasn’t enough. (Though never elected, she’s responsible for establishing Grandparents’ Day as a national holiday.) And with 14 brothers and sisters, it might have been that McQuade had to learn self-reliance and survival skills from an early age. When he was three years old, his next-door neighbors, Brooks and Maggie Taylor, took McQuade in when his parents went on vacation. “I didn’t want to go back,” McQuade remembers. “It’s hard to get attention with 14 brothers and sisters.”
19: Santa Fe architecture
30: The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, one of four museums in the Museum of New Mexico system, is a premier repository of Native art and material culture and tells the stories of the people of the Southwest from pre-history through contemporary art. The museum serves a diverse, multicultural audience through changing exhibitions, public lectures, field trips, artist residencies, and other educational programs.
