Soul of the Southwest
Sitting in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Taos County reflects its Southwestern heritage, including a Native American pueblo dating back a thousand years. The region's culture and heritage is brought to life through its world-class museums and galleries, but people also visit the area to soak up its outdoor splendor that features mountains, gorges, and valleys. On your trip here, follow the 138 km (86 mile) scenic drive that threads through the region, showcasing some of the area's most notable landscapes and mountain communities. In rural areas, watch for wildlife like antelope, elk, black bears, and bighorn sheep.
