One in our group read about this while on the plane and our first night there, we walked up to the cross. Great view of the city and a beautiful sunset too. I would do it daily if i lived there.

After hiking up a few stairs we stood by the cross and enjoyed the view Of Santa Fe. It is so close to down town worth the extra effort
