San Ildefonso Pueblo at Black Mesa
Black Mesa has deep religious and historical significance to the Indians.
The pueblo is situated at the base of the mesa. The Taos Mountain range is visible
in the background (about 50 miles away). The shot is taken from the White Rock
Overlook where the opening scene of Silverado
was shot. Near your feet, the Rio Grande River Gorge drops about 900 feet to
the river below.
