Two weeks in the American southwest began in Santa Fe, New Mexico. When we arrived, we could feel the city’s elevation at 2200 metres (7220 feet) through our lungs and our muscles. But we could also easily see the variation in colours on the mountains above. We began the drive on state highway 475 from the city up to @SkiSantaFe
, and from the lookout facing south, fall colours pointed towards the city of Santa Fe in the near, and towards Albuquerque and Sandia Peak in the far.
