New Mexico - Petroglyph National Monument

We were down in Albuquerque a couple of weeks ago, and hiked for an afternoon in the Petroglyph National Monument west of the city. It's an attractive and interesting hike, especially in cool weather. The fields of volcanic basalt rock provided plentiful surfaces for the estimated 25,000 images carved by Ancestral Puebloan peoples and early Spanish settlers.
