On June 17th, 1992 an image was spotted on the bark of a tree near Pinto Lake. The image resembled the outline typically used for the Virgin of Guadalupe. Since then, the area has been upgraded to accommodate the visiting pilgrims.
Aside from the many candles in a jar with the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe there are many flowers, photographs and offerings. Shoes of pilgrims who have walked to the shrine barefoot, locks of hair, and hats are presented. Over the years, the image on the tree has faded, but can still be seen.
