Santa Fe Trail Ruts


category : Landmarks
Santa Fe Trail Ruts Come and see the wheel ruts of the famous 60 mile "Jornada" Trail, a stretch of arid prairie between the Arkansas and Cimarron Rivers referred to by early Spanish explorers as the "jornada de muerte" or journey of death. The Santa Fe Trail swales are easily visible at this site. If you are looking for trail ruts, look for sudden changes in the grasses and gentle undulations in the earth.
