The place where these cultural treasures converge, the historic Plaza, is just minutes from Bishop’s Lodge. Take a longer excursion to visit the UNESCO World Heritage sites and Pueblos that offer a glimpse into native cultures that have inhabited this area for over 1,000 years.

Tracking the Chili Line

Discover physical traces of the Chili Line narrow gauge railroad that wended its way through the scenic desert landscapes between Santa Fe and Colorado from 1880 to 1941. Nicknamed for the New Mexico chili peppers it carried to markets in the north, the Chili Line was intended to connect Denver to Mexico City, although it only made it as far as Santa Fe, making it the nation's first north-south railroad line. Enjoy local lore that goes with this spunky and beloved railroad, such as the trackside Pueblo-owned Tea House at Otowi Bridge where the world-famous physicists from Los Alamos broke bread with Pueblo residents.
