Chama River Canyon Wilderness, New Mexico

April 1, 2004 | Text And Photography By Charles Klingsporn

Established in 1978, the 50,000-acre Chama River Canyon Wilderness is located north of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The terrain is typical of the high-country desert Southwest, with red sandstone cliffs and a variety of vegetation due to the mix of desert and canyon river terrain. The areas along the riverbed, at about 6,500 feet above sea level, are piñon-juniper and cedar woodland. The higher elevations on the cliffs, up to 8,100 feet, consist mostly of ponderosa pine and fir.
