Our Rivers

“Wild and Scenic” describes the Rio Grande and Rio Chama rivers of northern New Mexico. The Rio Grande thunders in the depths of a precipitous gorge, with wild rapids boxed in by sheer cliffs, while the Rio Chama flows more sedately through a canyon of multi-hued sandstone cliffs and stands of tall Ponderosa pine.
