Thanks to the special people of New Mexico for making our scenic state a haven rich in culture and history. Thanks to those that have preserved history and recorded it for others to appreciate. Also a special thanks to those who have sacrificed their lives with an energetic spirit of grit and hard work such as James Cooney and the miners that made our historical towns what they are . We will always remember those that came before us.
