An A can be for Alcalde, New Mexico. Alcalde is located pretty much at the lower mouth of the Taos Gorge.

And ... and interesting story. The Wikipedia article mentions the Oņate Monument is located in Alcalde. It includes a statue of Oņate, and practically nobody visits the place.

But somebody noticed for sure. You see, Oņate was involved in a bit of a skirmish at Acoma back in 1598. And here I'll just quote the Wikipedia article:

Quote:
In October 1598, a skirmish erupted when Oņate's occupying Spanish military demanded supplies from the Acoma tribe—demanding things essential to the Acoma surviving the winter. The Acoma resisted and twelve Spaniards were killed, amongst them Don Juan Oņate’s nephew. A war began and in January 1599, Oņate retaliated for the loss of his nephew; his soldiers killed 800 villagers, including men, women and children. They enslaved the remaining 500, and by Don Juan’s decree,[3] they amputated the left foot of every Acoma man over the age of twenty-five. Females were sent off to be slaves for twenty years. Eighty men had one of their feet amputated though other commentators put the figure of those mutilated at twenty-four.
Ok, fast forward a little over 400 years, and they build a monument to Oņate at Alcalde. Lo and behold, they wake up one morning soon after it opened, and somebody had hacked off the left foot of the statue. Long memories.

Oh, a T could be for Taos Pueblo, which is separate from -- and a whole lot older than -- Taos and Taos Ski Valley.
