It’s a given that the Southwest is a unique part of our country, but from a fellow northern New Mexican, the beauty of the Southwest lies between Denver and Santa Fe, New Mex.
Driving the road between Denver and Santa Fe via La Veta Pass is a trip for the senses. A little over 350 miles of geographical beauty, openness, sunshine, snow-capped mountains, rolling hills, puffy white clouds, clean air and wild flowers are only some of the overall nature-packed scenes you will see in this 350-mile plus stretch. All you need is one summer weekend to enrich your senses.
Side note: Don’t forget to stop for a green chile hamburger at the Southwest Grill in Pueblo, off Highway 50 West, Del’s Diner in Ft. Garland, or El Taoseño or enjoy a Lottaburger with green chile in Taos.
