Reggie Ray wrote a chant dedicated to his conception of a local protector, and some longtime practitioners have set up a naga shrine there where they make offerings on the proper days.
I wouldn't pretend to know a local protector, but having been to Crestone on a number of occasions, I'm certain there's some next-level stuff going on there. The vibe is palpable.
I believe it's a Naga shrine you can find along a creek that crosses the road out to the Tashi Gomang Stupa.
