Between Sapello and Mora, State Road 3 follows a narrow strike valley eroded into soft shale between ridges of resistant sandstone called hogbacks, both the result of uplift of the Rocky Mountains. To the east stretch the Great Plains, and to the west, the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, rising to elevations exceeding 13,000 feet.
The elevation here is 7000 feet.
