Mesa Alamosa is a smaller version of Landergin Mesa some five miles to the east, and is sometimes called “Little Landergin Mesa.” It, too, may be a defensive retreat position used by Antelope Creek villagers during periods when hostile raids were expected. Mesa Alamosa was known to Studer and Hughes, but was first formally recorded by Marmaduke and Whitsett in 1973. Photo by Chris Lintz.
