Additional Details:
Called "Katzimo" by the Acomas (Indian for Enchanted) Standing 430 feet above the windswept plain is this golden brown sandstone pinnacle. The Acoma Indians have a legend that this Mesa was once the home of their ancestors - but the entrance was closed by an earthquake while they were at work in the fields below and they were never able to return to their homes. Even today it is not possible to climb to the top of the Mesa without the aid of mechanical apparatus and only the most experienced climbers should attempt the ascent. "From the Land of Enchantment."
