The bartender at Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi recommended we go here for sunset and he was not wrong. If you're not used to the elevation in Santa Fe, the walk up to the talk can have you breathing hard, but just take it slow & rest. Lovely view

Go up about a half hour before sunset and take in the ever changing sunsets of Santa Fe. The colors are different every night and all good. Take a bottle of wine and just sit and enjoy.

Beautiful view of Santa Fe and surrounding mountains from the top. We hiked up and caught the sunset. We love watching sunsets over water, but seeing the sunset over the mountains was a spiritual experience.

Take a short walk to the top of this hill and learn about the history of Santa Fe, while taking in the views.
