Virtual Travel on the Santa Fe Trail

EDSITEment logoThe National Endowment for the Humanities has selected the Santa Fe Trail and New Mexico as its featured virtual destination for the month of June. On its EDSITEment page, NEH has teamed up with UNM to travel to places such as San Ildefonso and Taos Pueblos, El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, and our very own Palace of the Governors in The Road to Santa Fe: A Virtual Excursion.

While this is geared towards K-12 teachers, the wealth of information is useful to all ages and levels of interest. Excellent links to articles, photographs, maps, and interactive sites will keep you busy for a while. If you're planning a trip to New Mexico or are here already, browse through the site for some history and sightseeing ideas. If you're not fortunate enough to be in The Land of Enchantment this summer, hopefully this virtual tour will suffice, despite the absence of virtual chile.
