All of the homesteads had beautiful gardens, corn fields and bean patches. Someone took us out to a section of land. We could smell the piñon and pine trees. What a peaceful and lovely place it was! I remember standing there, looking up to the top of the Alegra Mountain and saw a big rainbow in the sky.
