A link to Sangre de Cristo Mountains was e-mailed
Chimayo, New Mexico
This lone backpacker among the rock formations in central New Mexico evokes what it must have been like for the native Tewa Indians when traveling by foot was the standard mode of transportation. Located about 30 miles outside Sante Fe near the Nambe Pueblo and the historic Spanish-founded village of Chimayo in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the rocks appear as various, rich shades of red, depending on the time of day the sun strikes them.
