Mogote (1856, 7,900 feet), an unincorporated hamlet on the Conejos River, was named by New Mexican farmers for a small, triple-peaked mountain nearby that reminded them of bundled sheaves of grain. Although the post office closed in 1920, a few descendants of the original settlers remain here at the base of picturesque Conejos Canyon, with its scattered dude ranches, summer cabins, and a trout hatchery.
