Did You Know?
The dreaded Jornada del Muerto is a 90-mile stretch of almost waterless desert on El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro in present-day New Mexico. In the 1600 and 1700s, Spanish trade and supply caravans traveling the road between Mexico City and Santa Fe would move through this section at night.
