Santa Fe Trail at Fort Union


The wheel ruts shown were made by the wagons weighing eight to nine tons and drawn by oxen coming west over the plains and on across the Rockies to this point near the end of the Santa Fe Trail approximately 187 years ago. As it rarely rains, the ruts are still visible on the desert alongside I-10 in modern day New Mexico. Fort Union was built to protect settlers as they traveled west, and it is just a few miles from this spot.
