The Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the north of the
state are crossed by routes used since Spanish
colonial times, or even earlier by indigenous
people. These are the highest passes in the state
and are a land of cool forests even in the summer.
As you go south historic passes become more and more
wide shallow gaps between alluvial fans, reaching up
to dessert mountain ranges. But even in the land of
large private land grants, trails and dirt roads
