Additional Details:
It is said by historians that at or about this point, Coronado crossed the Pecos River in 1541 on his fruitless expedition into the Buffalo country, which is now Texas and Kansas. Arriving in New Mexico in 1540 he had established head-quarters and spent the winter of 1540-41 near the present town of Bernalillo. Santa Rosa is a very old Spanish town on the river, which at time is "dry" but mighty during the rainy season when floods and cloudbursts come from the mountains.
