Brazos Cliffs, New Mexico, Winter Majesty

Standing guard over the Chama River Valley in northern New Mexico are the Brazos Cliffs. Behind them is scenic high country, and to the north are mountains of the New Mexico and Colorado borderland. The Brazos Cliffs are visible from most of Heron Lake and are part of the view enjoyed by sailors at Heron Lake State Park and by New Mexico Sailing Club members and visitors to the Heron Lake Marina. During the spring runoff, visitors can sometimes witness a seasonal waterfall, El Churro, that flows down the cliffs, usually for just a few weeks.
