"Riding The Rim"

These riders are from Picuris.  Ordinarily, their route back to the Pueblo would take them closer to the mountains.  But, this evening, they will drop down into the gorge just above what is now Pilar, camp for the night and, if they're lucky, spot a big horn sheep.  It's winter, food is scarce and a sheep would be welcome.
