Hidden Lake on Navajo River
This is the snowed under Navajo River and the Rio Chamita along the Continental Divide on the border between New Mexico and Colorado in the Tierra Amarilla Grant area of the San Juan National Forest in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The Navajo River was originally known by the First Nations Jicarilla Apache as ” Lóolahó”.
The headwaters of the river are in the distant valley to the middle left of this image. This river was both a lifeline and a transportation corridor to the ancient people who occupied this area. For the full story on this image visit the corresponding page on Where Eagles Fly
