West Mesa


West Mesa

The West Mesa is an elevated landmass lying west of the Rio Grande River stretching from south of Albuquerque northward to Bernalillo in the U.S. state of New Mexico. The eastern edge of the West Mesa is defined by an escarpment that borders the Rio Grande floodplain. The western edge of the mesa is the Rio Puerco River near the Laguna Pueblo about 20 miles (32 km) west of Albuquerque. A large portion of the West Mesa is part of Petroglyph National Monument and is bisected by Interstate 40 and Historic Route 66. There are numerous subdivisions with new homes being built on the lower porion of the West Mesa as the City of Albuquerque continues to expand further to the west.

The following locations and geographic features are part of the West Mesa:

* Double Eagle II Airport
* West Mesa Airport (now defunct)
* Nine Mile Hill
* Volcanoes National Monument
* Village of Lost Horizon
