Legend of Angel Fire

LEGENDS OF ANGEL FIRE

First came the Moache Ute Indians, who settled in the quiet Moreno Valley in the 1700's. They stood in awe of the Orange glow atop Agua Fria Peak, and took it as a blessing on their rituals....an omen from The Great Spirit.

Then, a great fire threatened to destroy the forest. The Ute Indians prayed for rain to save it....and the rain came just in time! Thereafter, the Utes called this intervention "Angel Fire."

Along came the Franciscan Friars. The Good Brothers called this mysterious mountain "The Place of the Fire of Angels." The Friars thus added to the legends of the Indian. Then in the 1860's the famed Indian Scout Kit Carson called the glow of morning sunlight on the trees sparkling with dew "Angel Fire." Early Maxwell land grant maps identified this mountain as "Angel Fire Peak."

The frontiersman came in search of gold! By 1870 more than 7,000 residents had chased that legend by moving into the valley, removing a reported $1 million per day from gold, copper, and silver mines in the valley. Desperados and priests, gamblers and visionaries; all have staked their claim here in the Moreno Valley....of which Angel Fire is the legendary crown jewel.
