Eastern Mojave Vegetation North La Veta Pass, Costilla County, Colorado.

Query: G.N.I.S.

See also: Veta Pass.

From an undated Domestic Geographic Name Proposal:
The new crossing of the Divide by Highway 160 was referred to locally as Muleshoe Saddle prior to construction of the new section of Highway 160. This usage is not well documented except that it was a saddle or pass above the old railroad settlement of Muleshoe. The records of the Blanca Trinchera Ranch so designate the area. The authority for this usage is Mr. Bish Atencio of the said ranch. Members of the town of La Veta refer to the new crossing as North La Veta Pass and some call it New La Veta Pass. We recommend North La Veta Pass in that the name is noth directional and retains the historical connotation of La Veta.
