The Elena Gallegos Land Grant extends from the Rio Grande to the crest of the Sandia Mountains.

Interior lots are .89 acre and corner lots are .73 acre after subtracting out the road and public easements. The original platting ignored natural topography and drainage patterns, leaving some lots with significant drainage issues or located in the 100 year flood zone.
