Santa Fe Trail: 200 Years Later

November 2

Robert Nott

 Journalist, Santa Fe New Mexican

Gabriela Campos

Photojournalist, Santa Fe New Mexican

Robert Nott and Gabriela Campos travelled a significant part of the Santa Fe Trail last year reporting on, and photographing events and activities surrounding, the Trail’s Bicentennial Celebration.  It was in 1821 that the trail was opened by William Becknell as the major trading route between the United States and Mexico.  Robert and Gabriela will talk about his travels and share his observations during this trip, many of which were captured in a series of articles published by The New Mexican last Fall.  Gabriela’s photos provide a rich visual record of their trip.

Robert Nott is a longtime journalist with The New Mexican.  His multiple other interests are as an actor, playwright, and dog lover.

Gabriela Campos was born and raised in Santa Fe, NM. Her work has been featured in The Guardian, High Country News, VICE and other Southwestern publications.  Today, she continues to document the rich cultures and traditions of New Mexico as a staff photojournalist for The New Mexican.
