La Veta, Colorado

A look across the town lakes.
Greenhorn (Pont Verde), the distant massif, is named after a Comanche bandit/chief.
The Spanish governor in Santa Fe sent a punitive expedition in the 1790's, who tracked him to this mountain.

Two years ago a major blowup occurred in the Town when the growth faction tried to put up a cell tower roughly in the center of this picture.
It would have stood twice as tall as the dead cottonwood.
It was to have been disguised as a plastique conifer, though with awkward cones and candles.

The growth faction was defeated.
