Sangre de Cristo Mountains

These are the towering mountains of the Sangre de Cristo, the southernmost subrange of the Rocky Mountains. This range used to be called “La Sierra Nevada”, “La Sierra Madre”, “La Sierra”, and  “The Snowies” (used by English speakers). In 1719 the Spanish explorer  Antonio Valverde y Cosio named the range Sangre de Cristo (“Blood of  Christ”) mountains after being impressed by the reddish hue of the snowy peaks at sunrise, alpenglow.
