I can't resist the temptation to give you some history of the area!!! Picture it,,,,1830 the time of the "mountain men",,,Taos,,,where the trappers from the southern rockies would come in to spend the winter,,,sample those brown skin mexican women and that godawful "taos lightning",,,Right there walked the likes of Kit Carson,,Jim Bridger,,Joe Meek,,Davey Jackson,,Liver Eating Johnson,,Bill Williams,,Paulino Weaver,,Praying Jedidiah Smith,,John Colter,,All of'um!!!

Once you come out of the Eagles Nest---the Commanche!!! Many a white man,,mexican,,and indian met their end right there!!! Caught,,,tied to a stake,,shot full of pine slivers,,then set afire,,,and that was just the warm-up to the real hurt'un,,cause then----they turned you over to the squaws,,,and they liked pain,,,cut you from crotch to teat,,,and then skin you out of your own hide,,one piece at a time!!! Whooo,,,them was "shining times" the like to never be seen again!!! A fortune in furs went through that area on the way to St.Louis,,,and then London,Paris,,all of Europe.....Follow the river,,,and it took you to a place called E-Town,,or Elizabeth Town,,,Mighty rough.....

The mexicans would organize the big buffalo hunts right from there,,and the Indian hunts too!!!

The place was close to 100 years old before the Pilgrims landed,,,many a fine battle took place around there....Full of history,,unique to America!!!! Enjoy the area!!!!
