View south looking across the Rio Grande valley from the Millington site, which occupies a gravel terrace overlooking the lower active floodplain used for agriculture today as it was (on a much smaller scale) when the Spanish arrived. In this late winter photo, the river appears as a curving brown line of trees and cane. The green plants in the foreground are mesquites and creosote bushes on the site.
