NEW MEXICO The most popular telling of the tale appeared in "Apache Gold and Yaqui Silver" (1928). According to Dobie -- and most other versions of the story -- Adams was returning to California in August 1864 after delivering some freight to Tucson when he ran into some trouble in the Gila Bend area of Arizona. After luring him out of his camp, some Indians burned his two wagons, chopped up his harness and made off with his money and supplies. With what he had left -- a dozen horses, a saddle, guns and ammunition -- Adams made his way to a friendly Pima Indian village where he was surprised to find 20 white prospectors. Dobie gives Aug. 20, 1864, as the first day of the journey. It lasted more than a week and went northeast from the Pima village, around the White Mountains of eastern Arizona, past the present-day locations of Globe and Alpine, Ariz., and, presumably, on into western New Mexico and across the Continental Divide. Most people who have studied the story believe that would have been the original Fort Wingate, established in 1862 and located at what is now the village of San Rafael, three miles west of Grants. LA CIENEGUILLA - New Mexico history is captured at La Cieneguilla and San Marcos Pueblo, still visible in the petroglyphs and melted adobe walls that are now a part of the earth. The petroglyphs depicting humans as well as animals, which may date back as early as A.D. 1300, as sacred. The pueblo was active during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 when many of the American Indians living there played leading roles in the uprising.
