I started researching the stones in 2013 when I “found” the first stone in the lobby of the St. James Hotel in Cimarron, New Mexico, where it is today. Since then, I have been on a constant search for answers to the mystery that is the “Middle Eastern” and Templar Crosses carvings on the stones..! Read my book and send me YOUR thoughts on this amazing mystery to email@example.com..! I will respond

The book, about the sawmill camps in the mountains around Cimarron, Ute Park, the Moreno Valley, the Ponil Park site and others in the mountains around Cimarron has been in the making for many years, as the author, Louis Serna, gathered first-hand information about the rough logging camps and the people who lived there with their families, experiencing the hardships of hot and cold weather, few essentials and always the fear of accidents to their husbands who worked at one of the most dangerous occupations one can imagine.
The men were tough professionals who worked a hard day every day. Their story is fascinating…!purchase now

Louis was born and raised in Springer, New Mexico. He authored a book about his hometown of Springer, and in this book he includes a section in which he describes what life was like for him “When He Was a Kid”… growing up in Springer… perhaps a childhood not unlike that of kids anywhere, when they grow up with an inquisitive mind and proper parenting.
