Text of sign:


Rio Grande Rift


A tremendous split in the earth's crust has resulted in the Rio Grande rift basin filled with thousands of feet of alluvium from 

bordering mountains and lava flows from deep within the earth. About 650 feet of this basin-fill is exposed in the Rio Grande 

Gorge at the bridge crossing.
