The Indian God of Plenty beckoned and the principle sacrificed herself so that her people could live. Each year, thereafter, the Princess - The Angel of Shavano - reappears and weeps once more for her people. Her tears - the melting snow - fall on the land below and make it fertile.
The Angel of Shavano appears in the late spring and can be seen much of the summer. If you are headed west on Highway 50, and you are headed towards Monarch Pass, once you pass Salida, look to the mountains, on your right hand side. The Angle will appear with outstreached arms near the top of the second peak in to the right.
