The West Fork flows eastward from the Continental Divide. Across the divide lies the Navajo River , one of the headwater tributaries of the Colorado River. The East Fork extends a few miles into Conejos County, Colorado to a source near one of the headwater tributaries of the Conejos River. The confluence of the forks lies just within Archuleta County, Colorado. From there the Rio Chama flows generally south. It is joined by Rio Cebolla from the east,  then Rio Gallina from the west. Near the villages of Chili and La Chuachia the Rio Chama is joined by two of its primary tributaries.
Open Access funded by China University of Geosciences Beijing Under a Creative Commons license Highlights We studied microstructures related with fluid inclusions in high-grade metamorphic quartz. Abstract The study of fluid inclusions in high-grade rocks is especially challenging as the host minerals have been normally subjected to deformation, recrystallization and fluid-rock interaction so that primary inclusions, formed at the peak of metamorphism are rare.
The larger part of the fluid inclusions found in metamorphic minerals is typically modified during uplift. A detailed microstructural analysis of the host minerals, notably quartz, is therefore indispensable for a proper interpretation of fluid inclusions. Whereas high-grade metamorphic quartz may have relatively high contents of trace elements like Ti and Al, low-temperature re-equilibrated quartz typically shows reduced trace element concentrations.
The resulting microstructures in CL can be basically distinguished in diffusion patterns along microfractures and grain boundaries , and secondary quartz formed by dissolution-reprecipitation.
Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico is a black and white photograph taken by Ansel Adams, late in the afternoon on November 1, , from a shoulder of highway US 84 / US in the unincorporated community of Hernandez, New Mexico.

Etymology[ edit ] The name of the city has its origin through Latin , deriving from albus quercus meaning “white oak”. The name was probably given in reference to the prevalence of cork oaks in the province of Badajoz, which have white wood when the bark is removed. The first “r” in Alburquerque was later dropped, probably due to association with the prominent Portuguese general Alfonso de Albuquerque , whose family title among others and then name originated from the presently Spanish town, which was once a dominion of the kings of Portugal and used the Portuguese variant spelling of its name.
The change was also in part because citizens found the original name difficult to pronounce. History of Albuquerque, New Mexico and Timeline of Albuquerque, New Mexico Petroglyphs carved into basalt in the western part of the city bear testimony to early an Native American presence in the area, now preserved in the Petroglyph National Monument.
The Tanoan and Keresan peoples had lived along the Rio Grande for centuries before European settlers arrived in what is now Albuquerque. Of these, were densely clustered near present-day Bernalillo and the remainder were spread out to the south.
We sampled sediment underlying foundation stones of these structures to establish a chronological framework for each site’s construction. OSL dating of the quartz grains directly under the Snake Nest Wall suggest that the stones and, therefore, the structure was most recently emplaced between and A. Dating of the sediment beneath the Crestone Stone Huts suggests the construction time of these huts is between and A.
This comprehensive, fast-paced trip covers a fair amount of ground each day. For every touring day, expect three to four hours walking where you will encounter uneven surfaces, stairs, steps significant slopes, as well as considerable time standing.
A guide to the Spanish missions of New Mexico. Though most were destroyed in the Pueblo Revolt of , several were rebuilt prior to California’s first mission in San Diego. Dripping Spring has a noteworthy past. From providing an oasis, and rich source of game, to the ancient inhabitants of southern New Mexico, the Jornada Mogollon to a host of colorful characters from the Old West. A cave in the cliffs near the parking area was home to the Hermit in the late s.
A popular resort was built near Dripping Spring in the s and a tuberculosis sanitarium in the early s. With a knack for light, composition and color, he showcases the splendor of the Organ Mountains and the pristine wilderness areas often overlooked by locals and visitors.

Thorn was abandoned in and the settlers once again had to leave the area.
The Village was not re-occupied until and it was then named Hatch after General Hatch who had been a commander at Ft. The Village of Hatch became incorporated with the state of New Mexico in The river provided a steady supply of food and water and the warm climate improved the odds of survival. Over time, those people migrated from the area, leaving only traces of their existence through pottery shards and petroglyphs.
This is a do-it-yourself procedure. When fajitas are cooked cut into small slices. Perfect compliments for this divine composition are frijoles and Spanish rice. But they don’t call them skirt steaks in San Antonio–they call the fajitas.

Taos Pueblo , circa Pueblo peoples speak languages from four different language families, demonstrating their diverse origins. The Tanoan languages belong to the small Kiowa-Tanoan family. Tanoan is the main grouping within the family, consisting of three branches: In , Fred Russell Eggan contrasted the peoples of the Eastern and Western Pueblos, based largely on their subsistence farming techniques. Both groups cultivated mostly maize corn. In , Paul Kirchhoff published a division of Pueblo peoples into two groups based on culture.
They maintain multiple kivas for sacred ceremonies. Their creation story tells that humans emerged from the underground. They emphasize four or six cardinal directions as part of their sacred cosmology, beginning in the north. Four and seven are numbers considered significant in their rituals and symbolism. They practice endogamy , or marriage within the clan.
Creation[ [ edit ]n October , Secretary of the Interior Harold Ickes hired Adams for six months to create photographs of lands under the jurisdiction of the Department of the Interior , for use as mural-sized prints for decoration of the department’s new Interior Museum. An example of a Weston exposure meter. An average light reading is obtained from the device and the arrow on the circular panel is rotated across the value, yielding a range of aperture and shutter speed combinations that would properly expose the scene.

There were six pyroclastic eruptive events associated with the Cerro Toledo Rhyolite: All tuff sequences from Toledo intracaldera activity are separated by epiclastic sedimentary rocks that represent periods of erosion and deposition in channels. All consist of rhyolitic tephra and most contain Plinian pumice falls and thin beds of very fine grained ash of phreatomagmatic origin.
Most Toledo deposits are thickest in paleocanyons cut into lower Bandelier Tuff and older rocks [a[as with the Rabbit Mountain ash flow]Some of the phreatomagmatic tephra flowed down canyons from the caldera as base surges Heiken et al. Two major ash flows are relevant here. One derived from the Toledo embayment on the northeast side of the caldera is a 20 km wide band that trends to the northeast and is now highly eroded and interbedded in places with the earlier Puye Formation from around Guaje Mountain north to Santa Fe Forest Road This area has eroded rapidly and obsidian from this tuff is now an integral part of the Rio Grande alluvium north of Santa Fe.
The other major ash flow is derived from the Rabbit Mountain eruption and is comprised of a southeast trending 4 km wide and 7 km long “tuff blanket” interbedded with a rhyolite breccia three to six meters thick that contains abundant obsidian erupted as lapilli during the Rabbit Mountain ash flow Heiken et al. All of this is still eroding into the southeast trending canyons toward the Rio Grande.
