The Caja del Rio Plateau is more than 106,000 acres of stunning landscape managed by the Bureau of Land Management and the United States Forest Service.

Ponderosa, piñon and sabina trees serve as the canopy while the bosques (woodlands) along the rivers are dominated by cottonwoods. The trees, plants, bushes, shrubs and wildflowers throughout the Cajas are the life-giving foods for the area’s fauna, which roam along the escarpments of the canyons.

Rich with petroglyphs, the Caja Plateau is one of the most ecologically flush and culturally significant landscapes in the state.
