Pottery Class
Great for individuals, families, and groups of any size. Fun corporate team-building! Our pottery "experiences" are taught by local ceramic artists who volunteer their time, and 100% of net profits to charity. Paseo Pottery has joined the rank of a growing number of businesses embracing a radical form of conscious capitalism: cover costs, then donate rest to improve society. We start each pottery class by doling out drinks (we’ve got a variety of beverages to choose from, and you’re welcome to BYOB as well). Then we take students on a tour of our studio where over a dozen Santa Fe ceramic artists come to create. Paseo Pottery has been part of the local art scene for three decades. All of our classes are one-time, two-hour classes that prioritize the experience of touching, forming, and manipulating clay into expressions of art. The classes are experience-based, meaning that at the end of each session students recycle their work back into the clay mound. Students do not, however, walk away empty handed as they receive a $15 credit to chose a piece of pottery from the gallery, which is full of pottery handcrafted by local Santa Fe artists.
Magical Old Town, Past and Present
Our exploration of the Old Town Plaza will begin with coffee, tea and biscochitos on the balcony of our home, looking out over the original town square and historic San Felipe Church. We will overlook history as well, and gaze back from the Tiwa people on who’s land Old Town was built, to life on the plaza during the Spanish, Mexican and American colonial periods. Next we will undertake a walking tour of the plaza with a focus on the old adobe architecture and the stories associated with the buildings and smaller placitas that make up Old Town, using historical photos and visuals to support the information. This stroll will include secrets and lore unknown even to most Albuquerque residents, interaction with some of the "old timers" that live and work here, and pointers what to see and do and where to eat, tailored to the needs and interests of each group. Old Town is a valuable community resource and there are frequent impromptu happenings- quinceaneras, vintage car parades, etc. The tour will embrace these spontaneous events as they occur making the visit to Old Town even more vibrant and personal. Please contact for custom tour times. Se habla español. Other things to note As planned the tour involves one flight of stairs.
The Santa Fe Creative Scavenger Adventure
Welcome to my tour guide designed interactive scavenger hunt! These unique experiences are a departure from traditional scavenger hunts and are created to allow visitors to a new place to go deeper fast. They allow opportunities to talk to locals about fun subjects, get creative with the environment and act as detectives on the hunt for art and interesting local stories. The magical part is the energy and uniqueness you bring to the table because every game ends up looking a little bit different. Its an chance to connect with your team mates in a lighthearted and fun way, get plenty of fun photos and videos and allow yourselves to just play. The game is designed for all ages of people who enjoy exploring and being creative. Little ones do well on an adult led team. Older teens may enjoy playing on their own team. Boys vs the girls can be fun for some friendly competition. The game also works whether its the 2 of you or up to 30 in your group. The hunts are little compressed engines that explode into all kinds of different possibilities. This game is a co-creation between you & your interactive host who is customizing and interacting as you play. Specific correct answers get additional stories and facts from your host who is in your pocket on Whats App. Other hunt locations include Taos, The Rio Grande, Steamboat Springs, New Orleans, and many places in Arizona & Hawaii.

This is a tour to showcase the different systems that support 'off-the-grid' living. how photovoltaic stand alone systems work, how to harvest rain water through catchment systems, how to take advantage of the sun to heat your home, and cool your pantry through passive solar design. Additionally, I can share information about how to design, build, and grow in a greenhouse, as well as various ways of construction such as straw bale, adobe, and conventional framing. We'll also take a 30 min hike to the top of our property to take in some amazing views of the Sante Fe Mountain ranges and the valley. Bring a camera, it's gorgeous. Other things to note There is a 3 .5 mile dirt road to get to our property. We'll meet when weather is mostly sunny and roads are dry. We do not advise traveling in case of rain & muddy roads — as such, inclement weather, we'll cancel.

Feed, walk with, groom and love a rescue horse
Visit New Mexico's expansive high plains, roll up your sleeves for morning chores and then spend some very special, hands on time with our varied horse herd. Walkin N Circles Rescue Ranch is home for up to 50 horses who have been abandoned, neglected, abused or surrendered. After first addressing a horse's physical health, the real work begins to regain their trust, to gently teach them how to be safe around humans, and ultimately find them a loving, forever home. After pouring yourself a cup of coffee, hop onto the hay wagon for a trip out to several paddocks. At each stop you participate in a teeny bit of daily chores: tie down a feed bag, strain water, muck stalls, and prep feed for the following day. Guests are then invited to halter & walk a horse to an area where you can spend time grooming, petting and basically giving him/her the social interaction that is important for their happiness. As one of our guests, Danika, wrote in her review, "you can become as involved as you want". Everything is done with a ranch person and you will never feel unsafe. Photo opportunities, horse hugs and warm fuzzy feelings will abound! For liability reasons, an Airbnb reservation is required to enter our property. Being a social impact experience, Airbnb has waived their fee! 100% of the proceeds received for the tour goes to the care of the horses at Walkin N Circles Ranch.

Habitat and Hydrology of Upper Canyon Road
On this 2.5-hour hike, we’ll explore the habitat and hydrology of Upper Canyon Road around Two Mile Pond, Santa Fe's former reservoir, to learn about deforestation and overgrazing, habitat restoration, and where we get our water. We'll gather at the Cerro Gordo trailhead to learn how firewood gathering and sheepherding long denuded the hills of brush and trees, and see the remains of two historic dams, the earliest dating to 1881. Damming the Santa Fe River both hindered local farmers while also helped the city grow. Our walking route covers about 2.5 miles of easy hiking trails with one staircase to climb to reach the historic hydroelectric diversion canal, which provided electric power to the city in 1895. We will also hike up Aztec Springs to witness a forest actively managed against wildfires in order to protect the city's water supply. Those with time afterward can visit nearby Water History Park to explore an early hydroelectric power station. Bring your camera, water, good walking shoes, and walking poles if you use them. The Two Mile Pond offers considerable beauty, from beaver ponds to restored forests to historic dam structures now reclaimed by nature.
