Long Description:
Ice age glaciers carved these beautiful alpine peaks, among the highest in the New Mexico Rockies, rising to 13,101 feet. Precambrian quartzite, some of the oldest rock in New Mexico, forms the core of the Truchas (the Spanish word for trout) Peaks, part of the Pecos Wilderness that encompasses some of the most pristine mountain terrain in the state.
