It is no mystery why so many people love Santa Fe, New Mexico. High altitude cities always have a mystical air, and Santa Fe is more mystical than most.
At 7,000 feet, Santa Fe's sky is deep blue and the air is thin and pure. Each night's sunset routinely turns a furious orange before fading to a deep pink.
Near the city, well-preserved ruins of cliff dwellings remind people of a colorful and noble pre-European history.
