Fall Festivals: Enjoying the best of the sunshine and small town beauty

Once the harvest is mostly complete, we sure do know how to have fall festivals.  Before the snow sets in and we all head indoors for the winter, the weekends are full of arts and crafts, wool, films, funnel cakes, chile and music.  Fall festivals in northern New Mexico always remind me of how truly beautiful the landscape can be, and the hospitality of small town people.  It is a glorious 70 degrees everyday, and as the days get shorter and shorter, we all seem to enjoy seeing each other out and about for the last few weeks before the snow comes in.  (At least we’re all hoping the snow comes in.)   The last two weekends, my family has enjoyed a couple of the festivals, the Hot Air Balloon Rally and the Dixon Art Tour.
