back of card: After leaving Las Vegas, the railroad winds over slopes to the commanding height of Glorietta Pass (Alt. 7,422 ft.) The downward ride is through Apache Canyon, where, in 1849 noted battles were fought between Kearney's army and the Mexicans, and in 1862 between Federal and Confederate forces.
