A favorite stop for Albuquerque tourist and locals alike is the Petroglyph National Monument. This special place and the petroglyph art shares the stories of an ancient past.  The images left behind were created by slowly pecking through the outer layer of rock and leaving a lighter color stone showing through.  The art and stories they tell have survived over 3,000 years for us all to see, enjoy and reflect on.  Some of the petroglyph art were created much later around the 1700’s when Spanish colonist came through leaving images of crosses, horses and domesticated animals.  Archaeologist claim to have explained  many of these ancient carvings and petroglpy art stories however others continue to perplex them.  Be sure to stop by and enjoy the pleasant hike through the volcanic boulders and the Petroglyph art that shares stories of ancient past.

John, That is another place in New Mexico that is going on to my bucket list.  I really want to go and visit Chaco Canyon as well!  New Mexico certainly has a rich cultural heritage!

Great article! Petroglyphs are so fascinating - we have some here in Washington too and I just love the mystery of them.

Nancy,  Thank you for coming by!  I bet Petroglyphs are actually pretty common in much of the west.  I suppose wherever those cultures settled for a while they left behind their symbols and signs. 

Hi Judi, Thank you for the kudos! This localism thing is interesting indeed and gets me out an about a bit more! You comments are always appreciated!

I went there in 1993, just a couple of years after it became a national monument and while I was trying to delay my first trip back to Texas after having moved to San Diego.

John, I must have started following you right after you did this!  Great place to visit and I really enjoyed it years ago when I got the opportunity.  I made a trip up to Bandileer (sp?) on another trip.
