Dear Editor:

I get very disturbed when I know the majority of the citizens of Archuleta County are against destroying the natural beauty of Reservoir Hill.

I have just finished reading 13 volumes of “Remembrances” of the early day settlers in this majestic area. I strongly recommend that all of you go to the San Juan Historical Society Museum and obtain copies of these books. Many of the individuals mentioned in the volumes still have descendants living in the close proximity of Archuleta County. The pictures and the descriptions of the hardships and close camaraderie of these pioneers is something to behold. The volumes provide pictures and stories of the early inhabitants of this area and are very educational.
