If you’re a Gen X person, you might think of TV antennas when you think of the words “rabbit ears.” You probably don’t think of this:
New Mexico’s “Rabbit Ears” landmark.
The Rabbit Ears are a pair of mountain peaks in northeastern New Mexico, north of the city of Clayton. The two peaks were a distinctive landmark along the Santa Fe Trail, a major route for westbound settlers in the 19th century. The formation was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1963. The highest of the two peaks has an elevation of 1,848 metres (6,063 ft) and rises several hundred feet above the surrounding Great Plains.
