The Santa Fe Trail leaves a long legacy

The New Mexican terrain used to contend with horse and buggy, it has found a new challenge in clubs and carts.

With rolling prairies and rugged mountains, the Santa Fe Trail was challenging to navigate, but rich to review.

And at the trail’s end, Santa Fe sat as a welcome oasis in the New Mexico territory, offering rest and respite to the coming commuters before they continued on toward California and Colorado.
