Travel to U.S.: West: Santa Fe: Photo 1
Santa Fe, elevation 7,000 feet, lies on the western side of a southerly extension of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. These are the Santa Fe Mountains, set aside in the Santa Fe National Forest. It's ski country, but it's also water-storage country. The snows in this aspen basin melt and drain west to the Rio Grande, but the snows on the far side of the peak at the right melt and flow into the tiny Santa Fe River, at whose outlet from the mountains Mexican colonists arrived in 1610.
