North Mesa Picnic Ground has been a meeting area in Los Alamos for sometime now. They recently added a frisbee golf course throughout the picnic grounds. The horse stables are nearby as well and the county ball fields. Great place to have a little fun within the township.
The stamp is based on the book Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol, all adaptations of this novel are worthy of watching or reading.
