This Herring bone pattern is unique to this area, and perhaps it has something to do with Rio Arriba DSD-3, technical area D2.
A good colleague of mine from Dulce and I (within the past 10 days) drove the entire circumference of the Archuleta Mesa, beginning from County Rd.
357 (going north) from Highway 64 in Lumberton to view the eastern slope and then entering into Colorado (near Edith), and then going west and then
north on County Rd. 359 (Coyote Park Rd.) and then going northeast on County Rd. 542 (Montezuma Rd.) and then viewing the northern foothills of the
From there we went south on County Rd. 500 (south Trujillo Rd.) and then to Indian Rte 169 (Juanita Rd.), crossing into New Mexico side to see the
Western Slope and finally to the southern hills of the Mesa along the Navajo River north of the town of Dulce. All these roads were dirt roads.
It took us about 45 miles to take the entire trip around the Mesa.
This really showed me how large the entire Archuleta Mesa area is.
In this trip we did not see anything unusual, except for a somewhat suspicious-looking private ranch (the Redding Ranch) on the northern side of the
Archuleta Mesa (the Colorado side).
This particular ranch has nothing to do with the other ranch located on the northeastern section of the Mesa (near Edith) discussed here, but,
nevertheless, the Redding Ranch which is located more towards the northwest foothills of the Archuleta Mesa south of Montezuma Rd./Trujillo Rd. on the
Colorado side definitely seems to be interesting, as well.
There seems to be a metallic hangar-like building in the ranch.
There were some small buildings in the ranch, along with four or five metallic (bullet-proof?) hunting-towers that seem to guard the area. Those
hunting towers definitely seemed out of place in such an area.
This former private ranch (the Redding Ranch) changed hands many times and is now under the total control of the Utes of Southern Colorado, and the
warning sign says "No Trespassing" and "property of the Utes tribe".
It seemed to me that this type of a compound could easily be used by any Black Ops programs.
Moreover, the Redding Ranch may be the only access to the Archuleta Mesa from the Colorado side.
As for the Eastern slope areas of Archueta Mesa (as we drove on County Rd. 357 from Lumberton towards Edith), it seems that the Mesa is inaccessible
to any heavy traffic (such as trucks, etc) since it is protected by the river and since there are no bridges on any northeastern portion of the
According to the Air Force Colonel from whom Anthony Sanchez got the information, the second, two-level underground installation is located in an area
between the Eastern slope of Archuleta Mesa and County Rd. 357, near the Colorado stateline.
True, it seems that there are some ranches (which could easily be used as outposts for any Black Ops programs) near the northerneastern portion of the
Mesa on the Colorado side. However, the logistics involved in creating such an alleged entrance and concealed heli-pads in that area may have been
difficult or nearly impossible with lack of any bridges to get to the Eastern as well as to the Northeastern slope.
As I just mentioned it seems that the only access to the Mesa from the northeastern side or from the North side of the Mesa (i.e., from the Colorado
side) may be from the Redding Ranch.
Yes, everyone knows that the National Institute For Discovery Science in 1998 gave a short report on this strange Redding Ranch located on the
Colorado side of foothills of the Archuleta Mesa.
And at that time, the conclusion (after talking to Mr. Redding who lives in the East Coast) of NIDS was that it was just a private ranch which
accommodated elk hunters, etc.
However, that was back in 1998.
IS THERE MORE TO THE REDDING RANCH THAN THE ABOVE EXPLANATION BY NIDS?
Yes, I think so.
Here is what my good colleague from Dulce says about this. And I agree with him:
"Based on the source of research by NIDS, yes, this was their take on the ranch years after the ranch let its defense down and allowed folks to
travel through it.
From early 1960's to late 1980's, you could not trespass on the Redding ranch, not even to retrieve a cow.
That is the million dollar question.
And, why are all the structures including the towers, doors and windows in bunkhouse constructed of a very heavy gage steel (making them bullet
NIDS continues to provide information or is it disinformation? to keep us off track, in my opinion.
In the fall of 1997, I led Gabe Valdez (former New Mexico State Patrol Officer in charge of the Dulce area) and two other scientists from NIDS on the
expedition and continued through up to Mt. Archuleta.
We were able to go directly to the towers, enter, photograph and see the tags with the manufacturer.
I told them that the glass, doors, shutters and structures were bullet-proof and was going to show them, but inexplicably, Gabe Valdez stopped me.
I could not get them to go to the "bunkhouse and hangar" to investigate further.
It seemed that they were not very interested in the facilities.
Also, I noticed that the airstrip had been plowed and planted with oats.
But again, no interest was shown by Gabe Valdez and the NIDS folks".
I could not agree with him more, especially his take on NIDS.
I also do not trust NIDS (National Institute of Discovery Sciences).
