La Bajada

New Mexico History Museum, Photo Archives Collection
Before it was re-routed in 1937, Route 66 included a rugged section which wound up over an escarpment near the canyon of the Santa Fe River.  We took a walk this morning along the lower section of the roadway, known as La Bajada.  I made some pictures of the Native American rock art which can be found on the slopes that go down toward the river, and I've put them in a page about La Bajada on my New Mexico Rock Art web site.

A excellent account from the National Park Service about La Bajada's long history is available on line.
