Did You Know?
Leading settlers and vast herds of livestock into New Mexico in 1598, Don Juan de Onate crossed the Rio Grande at what became El Paso. Onate then followed indigenous routes along the river, thus establishing the general route of El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, which was used for almost 300 years.
