Northern San Juan

The Northern San Juan, or Mesa Verde, region includes large areas of southeastern Utah, southwestern Colorado, and northwestern New Mexico. It includes much of the area drained by the tributaries of the San Juan River, and the confluence of the Colorado and San Juan Rivers forms the southwest boundary. The Colorado River forms the western boundary and the Animas River appears to represent the eastern boundary. The northern boundary is generally defined by the northern tributaries of the San Juan River, but can be extended north to include the southernmost portions of the Dolores River.
