The Pecos River Flume in Carlsbad

The Pecos River Flume in Carlsbad

Carlsbad began as a cattle camp on the trail running north from Texas. A dam on the Pecos River and diversion of almost the entire river lead to development of irrigated agriculture. The original wooden flume was destroyed by flood and replaced with this massive concrete structure, which now forms part of a five mile long recreational trail that runs right through town.
