Here I am visiting the Loretto Chapel and its "Miraculous Staircase" in Santa Fe, NM - We filmed an episode of "Cash and Treasures" about the Glorieta meteorite for the travel Channel near by, and I always wanted to see the staircase.

Myself and Robert Cucchiara met in the US capital city- since we had business at the Smithsonian Museum - and toured all the sites! Here I am at the Roosevelt Memorial, typically hamming it up for the camera.
