Zuni Pueblo

After passing through Albuquerque, Whipple traveled west along the Rio San Jose, crossed the Zuni Mountains, passed El Morro, and dropped into the Rio Pescado valley which led to the Zuni Pueblo. Here is a lithograph of the pueblo and its surrounds:

Whipple’s comment:

November 23–Camp 70…A small party visited the pueblo to-day. The road passed over a ridge, but we preferred keeping along the stream. Threading an opening between rocky bluffs [now known as Black Rock], we passed the rancho gardens; and, a few hundred yards below, entered the valley, several miles in width, which leads to Zuni…Near the center of this apparent plain stood the compact city of Zuni. By its side flowed the river which bears the same name.
