Bandelier National Monument
The Pueblo people settled in the sculpted canyons and mesa tops of the Pajarito Plateau west of Santa Fe about 900 years ago. This amazing volcanic landscape is among the most beautiful places in the Southwest.
On this trip we visit a National Monument (managed by the National Park Service) which holds cliff dwellings and expansive ruins of Pueblo villages dating to the 1200s. The drive to and from Bandelier is beautiful as we cross the Rio Grande near San Ildefonso Pueblo and have some extra stops that will amaze you. With our permit we can drive you right to Monument Headquarters so you can skip the shuttle!
This is our most popular trip and kids love it. We take an easy walk which we guarantee you will find uplifting and unforgettable.

Pecos National Historic Park
Pecos is one of New Mexico's best kept secrets. Though close to Santa Fe, few people visit this park, but those who do have an incredible, memorable experience. This beautiful historic and prehistoric place lies north and east of Santa Fe along the old Santa Fe Trail. Here the National Park Service protects the ruins of a large abandoned Pueblo village first built around 1100 and the massive church that the Spanish compelled the Pecos Indians to build around 1620.
This park also protects an important Civil War battlefield where a decisive battle occurred in 1862. We'll see stunning views of the southern end of the Rocky Mountains where the Pecos River begins its long trip to Texas in snowcapped peaks. You will visit the exceptional visitor center endowed by Greer Garson who lived near here during her life in movies.
Take a trip few people take. Pecos is close to Santa Fe and the drive there and back is beautiful.
