Additional Details:
This majestic eminence rises abruptly about fifteen miles west of Las Vegas, New Mex., and is visible most of the beautiful journey through mountainous scenery between Las Vegas and the Ancient City of Santa Fe. Legend has it that in early days a detachment of Spanish soldiers sought refuge on this peak, but being surrounded by Indians, sought death by starvation rather than torture at the hands of the Indians.
