NEW Visual Storytelling

A Healing and a Grace

They left the tame places back East and traveled to the American Southwest. Some wanted silver, some needed healing. Artists were drawn to the audacious colors of sky and the scent of sage on a hot night. Wild horses tug at our hearts. A lone cactus sings a song to the red rock canyons, and a message to the spirits of those long gone. Come home, artists and dreamers, to the Southwest.

NEW WINTER OPTIONS

Wintertime in the American Southwest

Whether you want to get into the snow and revel in winter, or escape the cold and bask in wellness, the southwest is an ideal vacation choice. In the low desert, temperatures are mild and perfect for long walks, golf, star gazing, and exploring ghost towns. If you’re a fan of winter sports, the high elevations offer world-class skiing, tubing, ice-skating, and exquisite mountain lodges.

National Parks are open in the winter, and you’ll have the opportunity to experience them in relative solitude. Zion and Bryce are particularly spectacular, with snow icing the red-rock marvels. Sedona lights up all winter long—stroll the streets, linger in galleries, explore Oak Creek Canyon, and seek out one of the vortex’s that the area is famous for.

Timeless Santa Fe and Taos are cultural havens. The winter sports, shopping, and dining at Sundance are legendary. Traditional western ranches and towns are a delight. Go dog-sledding and meet the pups. Feed your creative nature with private workshops. Unwind in natural hot springs. Winter in the Southwest is all about renewal, wonder, and play. Smile.

Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico

America’s Southwest towns are some of our favorite destinations. Founded in 1610, Santa Fe is the oldest capital in the United States—for over 1,000 years it was the end of a trade route to Mexico City. The Hopi’s grew an abundance of food in the desert, and their methods still astonish anthropologists. Long after they’d left, a lone rancher staked a claim in Oak Creek, called it Sedona after his wife, and hoped she’d join him. She didn’t. But we are in love with those blazing red canyons.

The Southwest has it all, from lively urban centers to quirky towns with colorful characters. The Grand Canyon and Anasazi ruins call us. A saguaro cactus reaches to the sky not far from a pine forest. The story of the Southwest is about water. The Rio Grande is dotted with towns, and the Colorado River is made for rafting. This vast land is made for travel.
