“That cow was being dragged sideways somehow with its legs
touching the ground. The cow's back was moving toward the weird,
loud sound and the cow could not move its legs to get up.”
- Larry Gardea, Carpenter, Chacon, New Mexico
June 7, 2010 Chacon, New Mexico - Northeast of Santa Fe, New Mexico, across the Carson and Santa Fe National Forests is the small and very rural ranching community of Chacon. Around Chacon rise mountains to 10,000-foot-peaks. There are only a few hundred farm residents who depend on each other to survive. They watch their pastures, the mountains and the sky for any signs of trouble.
