Lorenzo Herrera has lived near the three tall pines along N.M. Highway 434 all of his life. As far as he is concerned, they should stay.
When he was 6, he remembers walking with his grandmother, Epimenio Vigil, and the two of them took shelter under the pines during a severe windstorm.
The day — Oct. 13, 1951 — was significant in Herrera’s life. He and his grandmother were walking to his parents’ house to visit on the day his brother, Francisco, was born.
