San Felipe on the Rio Grande-New Mexico

San Felipe Pueblo is said to be one of the most conservative Pueblos in New Mexico.  It lies about thirty miles north of Albuquerque and sits on both sides of the Rio Grande.  The bridge over the river comes right into the pueblo at the base of beautiful mesas comprised of lava rock.

It lies just a few miles west of I-25 on Indian Service Route 85.  Just to the south of this reservation is the community of Algondones, NM.

  1. A couple of thoughts for your project. Perhaps include road signs in your photos to help distinguish the bridges (many look quite similar). Secondly, perhaps include historical photos when available.

  2. Dear Jim,
    My wife and I are involved in a blog project similar to yours. We have chosen to focus on the Rio Grande broadly speaking which means we will focus on the broad watershed of the river and the people, places and things it serves. We invite you to visit our blog at: http://www.ontheriogrande.blogspot.com
    During the month of July 2011 we are working out of Santa Fe and Albuquerque. At some point this month whenever it is convenient Coni and I would like to meet you and discuss our mutual interest in the river. In February we drove the 400 mile portion of the river that begins in Del Rio, Texas and ends in the Gulf Mexico. The photography is not yet complete and we hope to return to Texas next spring to finish it. My email address is: josue.gonzalez2@gmail.com
    You may also reach me by phone at: 866.258.7901.
    Please call us at your convenience and lets try to meet.
    P.S. Since I worked for President Carter and you worked for President Clinton I assume we are both Democrats and there's lots to talk about concerning our Party.
