Incorrect Aage.
Hint:
I appologize for misleading you here as I must correct my original phrasing (What river are we about to cross to this community?) to: "body of water" rather than 'river'.

Oh, come on, I can't believe nobody's figured out Marshall's contributions! (I'm keeping my mouth shut, but it's hard.)

The story goes this way: At the very same time as the Roswell crash on July 3, 1947, something most peculiar may have happened somewhere on the San Agustin Plains. Nothing at all was heard about any odd events on the plains for many years. Some locals who were around in those days recall a lot of planes flying around behind Shaw Mt. in the Coyote Peak area. This unusual amount of aerial activity went on for some months, well into the fall of 1947. This may account for the USAAFL-3 spotter plane crash at Horse Springs. It seems that in the summer of 1947, a retired rancher from the Plains area was driving on old route NM 12 about 20 miles south of Datil, when he noticed what he took to be a child walking in a pasture near the highway. This was a remote area where unattended children are never seen. He decided to stop and see if he could help. He parked his truck, opened a barb wire gate and went towards the "child." As he got closer, he noticed it was unlike any human child he had ever seen and it was not wearing children's clothing, but a one piece gray outfit. He encouraged it towards the gate and his pickup truck parked on the shoulder. It was apparently dazed but cooperative. When he got to the truck he picked up the child and put it in the front seat of his pickup. He said at this point it was very scared. He noticed four long fingers, but no thumbs, no ears, fairly large eyes. Traveling a few miles down the road, the rancher reached a little town of Horse Springs. There he turned north towards Green's Gap where he lived. Green's Gap was not a town, but the designation of a valley between hillsides. There was once a store here and a cluster of building which the locals called Green's Gap. It is 12 miles north of Horse Springs, NM between NM Highway 12 and US Highway 60. When he reached home, he brought the "child" into his house. His wife offered it food and water, but it would not take any. It did calm down some and they were able to get it into a chair. They contacted the Catron Country Sheriff's office; a deputy was due out the next morning. When the couple went to bed they left it sitting in the chair. When they got up the next morning, it was gone. Local lore has it that two years later in August of 1949, a crashed UFO was found with alien bodies, we believe it may have been on the south side of Pelona Mt. In the summer of 1947, Barney Barnett made his discovery of a crashed disk about a mile from NM Highway 12, within several miles of where the rancher allegedly found the strange child. Barnet said that three or four alien bodies were at the crash site. We assume the beings that Barney saw looked like the child and were on the ground outside of the craft. None appeared to be alive. Barnett said the craft had been split open on the edge. Indications are the craft Barnett discovered came down at night and occasional car lights would have been very visible from the crash site for some seven-hundred feet, in the slightly hilly terrain. A crash at Pelona Mt., or any of the surrounding remote peaks in the vicinity, would present a different set of conditions for an alien making its way from, on or around the area peaks and rugged terrain in between. Pelona Mt. is the highest peak n the immediate area at 9,220 feet. The mountain is about 15 miles south of Horse Springs (where the rancher turned north with his passenger). Many of the mountains including Pelona Mt., is steeper on the north side where it overlooks the Plains, than on the south side where the terrain is less steep and suitable for livestock grazing.

Recently a book about the case was written, "UFO Crash at San Augustin" (aka Agustine), and some UFO "experts" like Stanton Friedman and Chuck Wade claims the event at San Agustin really happened. This event may or may not be true, but the author and others are continuing to investigate it.

This site was chosen for being free of the light pollution of cities making it possible to view a very large array of stars.

This site is at the northern end of the Plains of Saint Augustin. There is a 3 word and also a very very short name for the site. What is the name of the site? The nearest town is a small town east of the site. There is also a larger town further east usually listed for the location on the internet. Where is the site?

Lynn, do you have any clues to offer?

Ok, lemme see. Another clue would be ... Highway 60. The "where is this" place is off to the left in the plains ahead.



Oh, and the movie filmed there includes a scene in which there are rabbits. And there are plenty of them out there. Not that that's much of a clue, though.

In the animal kingdom there are herds, troops, colonies, hives, swarms, flocks, mobs, prides, pods and I guess very large arrays of rabbits.

The bunny photo though is a jack rabbit, technically a hare. My dog Judy's favorite outdoor activity is chasing them although she never will catch one. I found a baby cottontail, which is a true rabbit, in the MacDonald's parking lot in Shiprock and brought it home. It escaped and became a house bunny. Took 6 months to catch the little bugger.

Dave
I think the site is open to the public year round. No, not Goldstone, but a sister site. Like Goldstone there is a nearby ghost town, an old mining town called Kelly. You can still find Smithsonite in the mine tailings. Also historic because it was the site of the last cattle drive in the state.

There is a private RV park in the town and boondocking in the National Forest to the east a few miles.



The name of the site has already been posted several times as has the location in previous posts.

I think it is time to be a bit blatant.

The girl (in both photos) is Jodie Foster. The movie filmed at the site is "Contact"

What color is Washington's white horse?

Boy, I am so surprised that folks were so stumped by that one, Marshall! Here are a couple more shots of the place:
