Santa Fe, New Mexico, Information

Founded in 1609, Santa Fe is the oldest capital in the United States. At an altitude of 7,000 feet, it's the highest capital city. Santa Fe has narrow winding streets, quaint adobe homes, gracious courtyards, beautiful sunsets and mountain views, and the mixed scents of piñon, red chilli, and tortillas wafting through the high desert air. With a population of only 60,000, it's truly a tiny city nestled in a valley formed by the Rio Grande, bordered on the west by the volcanic Jemez Mountains and on the east by the Sangre de Cristos.

Santa Fe is also called "The Dancing Ground of the Sun," and if in another place you were to see adobe homes, crowded one after another along narrow roads twisting into desert foothills, you might have to squint against the summer harshness of light. But in Santa Fe, as the sun touches these cubed structures with arched doorways and desert landscaping, they become strings of dew, dusky rose and turquoise shadows highlighted with glints of gold.
