Black Mesa

View looking north from Overlook Park in White Rock this AM. Rio Grande flows south past Buckman Mesa with its Otowi Peak in the foreground. In far background is the historic Black Mesa on San Ildefonso Pueblo land. In the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, the San Ildefonso people withstood the Spanish by climbing to the top of the Black Mesa for several weeks. [Opening scene from the movie "Silverado" filmed here.]
