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 these petroglyphs 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 however others continue to perplex them.  Be sure to stop by and enjoy the pleasant hike through the volcanic boulders and the arts of the ancients.

Hi Brian -  I am honored you re-posted.  My wife and I find the Petroglyph's very interesting and have hiked them many times.  It's good to find someone that finds the past as appealing as we do.  May the force of the Rain be with you.

Regards from the Q
