Neighborhood History and Architecture Tour and Hike
On Saturday at 2 p.m., you can walk through several neighborhoods near the Kiva Club with Walter Burke. He'll lead an informative 2-mile walk, discussing the history of Santa Fe, as expressed through various unique architectural details. From original mud plastered adobe casitas to modern luxury homes you'll learn about the various cultures of Santa Fe, including sweeping views of the City Different and Rio Grande Valley from the Cross of the Martyrs. We will leave from the Club, no driving necessary. Dress for the weather and wear a comfortable pair of shoes. Allow two hours for the hike. If the weather is inclement, the hike may have to be canceled or rerouted.
