  1. NO WAY about Trementina!! I had no idea!! Also, there was an interesting show about Fred Harvey on 60 minutes (?) or could have been CBS Sunday morning (😩) last year. I loved it. My mother in law is a Fred Harvey history buff and gives speeches on the subject all the time!

    1. Hahaha! That is so cool that your mother-in-law knows so much about the Fred Harvey history!I will have to check out the CBS story. It must have been such a fun experience to stay in one of those bustling hotels back in the day. I may try to recreate the experience (as closely as possible) by taking the train from Santa Fe or ABQ to Las Vegas for a weekend, then staying at the Castaneda.

      1. I know right? Shes coming to Denver in a couple of weeks. I’m going to have her present to us what she does for her audiences! Ha! She doesn’t know that yet!! That trip would be loads of fun. It was definitely CBS Sunday morning…just found the you tube video on it 😊

      2. How fun! I’ll check out that story when my husband joins me in NM this week. We used to watch Sunday Morning almost every week, but missed a bunch of episodes this past year, so it will be fun to catch The Harvey Hotel segment. Thanks so much!

  2. Hi there. Im commenting on the cave/ mine photo. I have been out there and took pictures of this and have been intrigued as well. I cannot find anything at all about it after trying to research. Was curious if you found any information about it? Im so curious about what it is. Take care

    1. Hi Jarron. I never did find anything out about the cave/mine. Next time I’m out that way, I will try to ask a ranger at Conchas Lake. Or maybe someone at the visitor center in Las Vegas knows something about it? Thanks for your comment, and good luck with your research!
