North Canadian Sunset
|Photo by Laban West|
The North Canadian River forms in the northeast portion of New Mexico near the Sierra Grand Peak. The river's name is changed to Beaver in Oklahoma's panhandle and then returns as the North Canadian when it joins the Kiowa water flow. The North Canadian, dependant on seasonal rains, is part of the Canadian River Watershed, made up of the Cimarron to the north and the Canadian River to the south. These two major rivers begin their flows with springtime snowmelt in New Mexico's peaks of the Sangro de Cristo Mountains, near the Colorado border.
