Threads of life

Durango is situated on the edge of the high desert and the mountains. In fact the root word for Durango is the Basque word "Urango" which could be translated as "Water Place". It certainly fits Durango well as it is one of the better watered places in the Four Corners. If it wasn't for these threads of life giving waters flowing through this place, it would be an extremely hard place to live as it receives less than 20" of rain a year.
