Inscription. Numerous salt ponds and lakes of which Laguna del Perro is the largest, occur in the lowest part of the Estancia basin, a closed depression between the Manzano Mountains to the west and the lower Pedernal hills to the east. The Basin was filled by a 100 foot-deep lake in the Pliestocene time and native peoples have always mined salt here. The community was founded in 1879.
