I've worked on the Navajo Reservation for 13 years. I've climbed Hesperus and can see it from my house. I've just always wandered about the designation as North with Blanca being designated East. I didn't pull out a map and check, but Hesperus is not much more North of Blanca (if at all).
... by author Hampton Sides also mentions these peaks quite a bit. The book is a history of the Navajo and their dealings with Kit Carson, Stephen Watts Kearny, and others during the mid-19th century. Great book, and this a great idea for a page. Thanks.
