Eight miles south of the Colorado border, little Chama is tucked into a lush valley that's carved into Rocky Mountain foothills. Native Americans lived and hunted here for centuries, and Spanish farmers settled the Chama River Valley in the mid-1700s, but it was the arrival of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad in 1880 that really put Chama on the map. Although the railroad closed, the prettiest part still operates as one of the West's most scenic train trips.
