The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe

Cerro Gordo – The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico – Michael’s Blog

Have you seen the film, Red Sky at Morning?  Richard Crenna starred in this story of a boy’s life in Santa Fe during World War II. It was filmed here in the neighborhood of the historic East side.

Walking the street of Cerro Gordo (Fat Hill) you will find that not much has changed.  The Santa Fe River slips through the sleeping city as the tones of St. Francis Cathedral hover in the air. One can take the short 2 mile trek along the river from the Plaza toward the lower slopes of the Santa Fe National Forest to the end of  Cerro Gordo Road.  The 20 mile long Dale Ball Hiking Trail begins there.

My family and I always look forward to visiting Upaya Zen Center, especially for the seasonal celebrations of the equinox.  The area is heavily wooded and the lush, arboreal landscape is a surprise for most visitors.
