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.
