Camel Rock Has Lost Its Mouth

Submitted by Carol A. Clark 

Camel Rock, the iconic rock formation south of Tesuque has been permanently changed when the “mouth” section fell off recently.

The loss of the mouth or lips of Camel Rock was apparently the result of natural erosion. The world famous landmark is visible along the highway north of Santa Fe on U.S. Route 84/285 between Pojoaque and Tesuque.
