    Dice la leyenda que un cuatrero viajaba un día de invierno entre el cuerno Principal y el cuerno Este y en este cuerno se quedó grabada su imagen , así que si le hechas un poco de imaginación podrás ver al cuatrero montado a caballo y con su gran sombrero en la cabeza
    The legend says that a rustler was riding a winter day between the Main and East Horn and on this Horn his figure was marked , so if you put some imagination you may see the rustler riding his horse and with a big hat on his head
