Two centuries ago a band of Moache Utes were awestruck by a strange glow atop Aqua Fria Peak in the Sangre de Cristos Mountains. A tribal elder declared the breathtaking sight "fire of the gods." The phenomenon became common during the tribe's autumnal celebration of the Great Spirit. Traveling Franciscan friars renamed the sight "fire of angels" to reflect Christian beliefs. Indian agent Kit Carson saw the "fire" at dawn and dusk during fall and winter and attributed it to the sun hitting the frost on the trees. Later, settlers called the mountain Angel Fire Peak. And today the town of Angel Fire, New Mexico, still carries a name born of Native American, Spanish and pioneer cultures. Felt bound. Napped. 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton. Dry clean.
