Travel Photo: Fall in Santa Fe, New Mexico
Note: click the photo for a larger view.
Autumn is a beautiful time to visit Santa Fe, New Mexico. While the town is still busy with travelers exploring the city’s galleries, restaurants, museums, and historic sites, the streets are far less crowded than what is typical during the very lively summer months.
With an elevation of 7,260 feet, October finds the area’s aspen trees turning a brilliant yellow, with the cottonwoods (pictured above) following suit with their own blaze of glory.
October temperatures typically top out in the mid-60s during the day, with morning temperatures generally in the high 30s allowing for a delightful crispness for your morning walk.
While I didn’t capture a photograph, another visual treat of autumn in Santa Fe is a beautiful dusting of snow on the mountain peaks surrounding the city. Very lovely indeed!
