Quail Run – The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico

It’s all about the lifestyle.  Quail Run is a meticulously planned gated community in Santa Fe, rich with all of the ingredients of care-free living.  The setting is fabulous and includes a lush, 9 hole golf course with spectacular sunset views.  This is where I learned to play tennis from the resident pro, Pat Narvais. The fitness club is world-class and includes swimming, therapeutic pools, jacuzzis, cardio machines, weights and stationary bikes.  I have always felt it a privilege to have membership to the club and its facilities.

My regular morning walk through the neighborhoods of Santa Fe takes me not only through the secretive streets and old burro alleys but also through the four seasons of the high desert.  With the warming, dry breeze that blows over the rooftops in early spring I walk along the Acequia Madre, (Mother Ditch) on the historic Eastside.  I couldn’t help but stop and take this photo because this year the snow melt has allowed us to have the acequia and the Santa Fe River flow everyday through downtown.

It’s the third oldest irrigation ditch in the United States. Except for tribes and Pueblos, ditch member have the oldest water rights in the state.  The annual ditch clean-up is in April and the whole town is always eager to participate.
