The Road to Winter

by in Finding Winter, Travel

North of Santa Fe, we drove along U.S. 285 and 84 toward our final destination, Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Along the way, we encountered many interesting sights. Just outside of Santa Fe is Camel Rock, so named because, well, you know… Further north, as the terrain climbs and the temperature drops, is Abiquiu Reservoir. Nearby is Ghost Ranch, the subject of many landscapes by the painter Georgia O’Keeffe, who maintained a residence there. The incredible scenery has been featured in many movies. A few miles up the road is Echo Amphitheater, a beautiful natural amphitheater formed in the sandstone cliffs. This was a fun road to drive, with some great scenery. Definitely worth another trip to get to spend a little more time exploring.
