Terrific tale!

Inky Ink, Inc.

I'm pretty sure I camped on that beach.

A great story well-told. Cabezon and Ojito are stunning places to visit. I also love that moment on 550 when Cabezon first appears.

Not only is Cabezon the monster's head, but El Malpais is its congealed blood.

peace,

There is a rock cairn on the top of Cabezon with a can that contains many climber's accounts of their experiences, some of which date back to the '30's and are pretty weird. The village of Cabezon/La Posta is heavily featured in the movie "The Hired Hand" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067204/), which used it as a location in 1971. During filming a wrangler was killed there when he walked into the moving rotor blades of a helicopter he was helping to unload.
