In New Mexico We Hike: Petroglyph National Monument

One of the most famous things in Albuquerque, besides the Balloon fiesta and Old Town is the Petroglyph National Monument. When one of my classes was cancelled, I joined Christina and Christopher on a hike through the Monument. There are several adjacent sites and trails that show symbols carved onto volcanic rocks by Native Americans and Spanish settlers hundreds of years ago.


The visitor’s center had a few ristras of red chiles hanging around the entrance.


Unfortunately, we arrived there quite late we could not take any of the long more impressive trails. So we took a short trail with only few petroglyphs. But it was really nice to stick feet into the warm sand of the desert.
