Journey's End, Santa Fe, New Mexico
New Mexico
In 2002, Reynaldo "Sonny" Rivera planted Journey's End, his massive bronze sculpture, at the entrance to Museum Hill off Old Santa Fe Trail. It captures a scene made familiar by repetition over a period of almost 60 years. In this sculpture, six tired mules struggle to pull a heavy wagon up a hill. One of the mules has stumbled. The muleskinner leans down to help the animal as it struggles to regain its footing. Passing the trail, a Pueloan woman looks on, while a boy waves at the lead wagon as he and his dog have run out from town to greet them. At this moment the trail boss points toward the end of the trail on the Santa Fe Plaza. So they will enter the plaza soon, marking the end of a long and difficult journey.

More About New Mexico

New Mexico is a state located in the southwestern region of the United States. Inhabited by Native American populations for many centuries, it has also been part of the Imperial Spanish viceroyalty of New Spain, part of Mexico, and a U.S. territory. Among U.S. states, New Mexico has the highest percentage of Hispanics at 45% (2008 estimate), being descendants of Spanish colonists and recent immigrants from Latin America. It also has the third-highest percentage of Native Americans after Alaska and Oklahoma, and the fifth-highest total number of Native Americans after California, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Texas. The tribes represented in the state consist of mostly Navajo and Pueblo peoples. As a result, the demographics and culture of the state are unique for their strong Spanish, Mexican, and Native American cultural influences. At a population density of 16 per square mile, New Mexico is the sixth most sparsely inhabited U.S. state.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_mexico]
