La Bajada Historical Marker in New Mexico

 

Text of sign:

 

La Bajada 


La Bajada, or "the descent," marks the division between the Rio Arriba or "upper river," and the Rio Abajo, or "lower river," 

sections of New Mexico.  This steep and dangerous grade was long an obstacle to caravan traffic going from the Rio Grande

Valley to Santa Fe.
