I am a fan of National Parks and Monuments. I learn something new every time I visit one. I come to appreciate what a great country we have. One of the places that I have visited and enjoyed is the Petroglyph National Monument. There is a good selection of petroglyphs in the area.
Petroglyphs ares are the “written” history of the people who live there first. The pictures are pecked or etched into stones. Most of them are done on the faces of larger rock walls. Exploring the different interpretation of the pictures is something I find very interesting. Most of the petroglyphs at this monument were made by the Pueblo, Apache, and Navajo people.
The headquarters is where you go to information and they will be happy to give you directions to where you can view the petroglyphs. You can also pick up literature and purchase books.
Have you ever seen a petroglyph?
