  • Interesting rock art... I'm thinking the best time to photograph the rock art is in the morning when the sun in coming up since the art is on the East Side of the ridge.
  • A great hike in the desert, with mountain views. Didn't see any big animals but there are animal poops everywhere.
  • Amazing. So cool. Well worth the little rocky hike!
  • Really cool! It was amazing to see these so close!
  • Really nice area for a short hike or a nice stroll. I need to do more research about this place. The petroglyphs were really awesome.

Where to stay in Santa Fe

Though the downtown area contains most of Santa Fe's finest hotels, you can find plenty of equally comfortable inns and motels just outside this busy central district. Remember also that most of the city's centrally located hotels raise their prices during the height of the tourist season, so it is essential to look for deals and make reservations well in advance. To experience the true spirit of outdoor New Mexico while on holiday, consider sleeping under the stars at a campground just a short drive from Santa Fe's major urban attractions.
