About this image
This view to the North shows East-dipping beds of a monocline formed along the Comanche Fault. Just to the East is the Albuquerque Basin of the Rio Grande Rift while just to the west are flat-lying sediments of the Colorado Plateau.
Carrizo Arroyo is on State Land but road access is difficult through private land.
