We took the hike through the area and it was great. Easy going, pretty scenery, I was sorry I forgot my binoculars because I would have liked to have seen the birds better

We were here for a long weekend and the temp was in the 60’s, a little cooler in the mountains-perfect for hiking. We only wanted a short hike so we went to the ski shop near the ranger station and hiked the marked trail. It...More

Our last morning in Santa Fe and we were weary of crowds and stores... so we took a drive up through this National Park and found the quiet and serenity we were seeking! Hardly another car or person in sight and some very beautiful scenery...More
