Black Mesa

On the drive from Santa Fe to Los Alamos, one passes Black Mesa, a large volcanic outcropping located in the San Ildefonso pueblo. The mesa stands out because of its distance from the other mesas on the Jemez plateau as well as its black and green appearance.

My wife took some neat pictures of the mesa on the way to Espanola:

  1. I believe I've visited that pueblo you can see right in front of the mesa. It was a neat experience to go see what a modern native community is like. Also, there are serveral artisans who live there and sell their work out of their homes for pretty good prices.
