Paraje de Fra Cristobal

 

The mountain range seen along the east bank of the Rio Grande is named after Father Cristobal de Salavar of the 1598 Juan de

Onate expedition.  An encampment at the northern edge of the mountain, whose profile is said to resemble that of the good friar, 

was a place of rest for caravans on the Camino Real as they entered or exited the Jornanda del Muerto.
