Pecos is surrounded by woodlands of juniper, pinion and ponderosa pine in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains just Southeast of Santa Fe New Mexico.
Spring or Fall presents the best weather for exploring the park, descending into the underground Ceremonial Kiva's and hiking the trails.
The Sanctuary of Madonna Della Corona, "The Lady of the Crown" from the 16th century is located close to Lago di Garda. It's easy to get here by car.
The basilica built right on the rock is must visit place if you are at Lago di Garda. The picturesque church is in the shadow in the morning. You get the best light on the basilica from midday onwards. It's pretty popular and gets even more crowded during the weekends especially on Sundays. However, during service, you hear the choir echoing in the valley which creates a very special atmosphere.
There are already signs at the parking lot to wear proper clothes. So please protect your shoulders and don't wear a short trouser or skirt; knee length is desired.
