High up in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, on the Aspen Vista Trail, you can really get away from it all. Surrounded by wildflowers and wildlife, tall ponderosa pines and aspen trees, your cares just slip away. The round-trip hike to Tesuque Peak above Ski Santa Fe is a strenuous 12 miles, but you can meander along the first 2.5 miles of this trail, passing through groves of tall aspen trees. However far you travel, there’s always a perfect picnic spot with a view.
