Summer Guide 2011

June 15, 2011, 1:00 am
By SFR

Certain people exemplify summer. They’re the ones who love nothing more than long days and warm sunshine, eschew skiing and, in extreme cases, wear flip-flops all winter in silent protest. They thrive on all that summer means: melting ice cream, outdoor music festivals, swarms of out-of-towners and the general burst of activity that pervades Santa Fe as soon as the weather turns warm.


For this year’s Summer Guide, SFR profiles a handful of those people—the ones we think best epitomize both summer and its attendant pleasures.


You’ll gain insight into the lives of a local DJ, an operatic muse, a firefighter, a Grammy-winning flutist, a horseshoer, an artist, a ranger and a rapper. You’ll ride the range with a real live cowboy (even if he was born in the Big Apple) and sample the delights of the Santa Fe Farmers Market in full bloom. 


These people know summer; indeed, their work (or play) defines it. We hope they provide some inspiration for the rest of us to craft our own perfect season.


And whether you’re a summer-lover or a snow bunny, get out and enjoy the sunshine this year. These long days won’t last forever.
