New Mexico Rivers

(New Mexico)
Here are photos of some rivers in New Mexico, taken in various parts of the state and at different times. Hope you like them.

Río Pecos

The Pecos starts in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the north, flows southerly and empties into the Río Grande in southwest Texas. The Red River, a much smaller river, begins in the same general area and flows westerly into the Río Grande.

Río Grande

The Río Grande is one of the longest rivers in the USA, originating in Colorado and flowing through the entire state into the Gulf of Mexico in southeastern Texas. In the eastern part of the state is the Canadian River.

Cimarron River

In the very northeast, the Cimarron River flows easterly into Oklahoma. And, in the very northwest, the Animas River enters from Colorado and empties into the San Juan River at Farmington.

Jemez River

And finally, the Jemez River, located in the north central area, flows through the Jemez Mountains and empties into the Río Grande north of Albuquerque. Each river has its own characteristics, and all are beautiful.

    NM is my favorite state. Period. And nice to see those rivers, headed off to their various desitinations. I have read of recent snows, and hope they will be well supplied with runoff this year.

      It’s also my favorite. Yes, the moisture is very welcome. Hope to have a good springtime.

    Beautiful! With all that are you taking time to fish or paint?

      Thanks for commenting Rich. I don’t fish and seldom paint anymore.
