The Continental Divide

The Continental Divide Mural in McKinley County New Mexico

The continental divide is a geological feature of North America that begins at the Cape Prince of Waes, within the Bering Strait of Alaska, and ends in Mexico.

During my trip I visited the continental divide mural in western-central New Mexico, in McKinley off of Interstate 40. The divide falls between the sandstone cliffs that indicate the souther end of the Colorado Plateau in the north and part of the Zuni Mountain range in the south.
