About this image
The Rio Chama has cut a deep canyon through Mesozoic rocks in North-central New Mexico. Our Rio Chama river guide contains a wealth of information about the geology and human history of the area.
This photo was taken just downstream of the Benedictine Abbey of Christ in the Desert, which is visible on the right.
