Questions for Photo 3

1. Compare this photo with Illustration 1. Which image gives you a better sense of the geography in the area?

2. The railroad, next to the creek, follows the historic route of the Santa Fe Trail. How do you think Manuel Armijo's army might have prevented Kearny's army from going through the pass?

* The image on this screen has a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a larger version of Photo 3, but be aware that the file will take as much as 35 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
