All photos are mine, and I did my best to collect some of the most interesting inscriptions. In no way could I capture the total amount of these inscriptions, but I did my best to reflect the concept of this monument. Some inscriptions did not photograph very well, however if you would click on the photos you can enlarge them and should be able to make out most of the writings. I want to thank the Western National Parks Association for almost all the information I added on this blog. If you are ever out in New Mexico, try to take time to visit this interesting monument. It is on Interstate 40 west of Albuquerque about 2 hours, close to Gallup..

The vast majority of inscriptions were made by men which history only knows of them by their simple marks upon this sandstone walls. This post is made up of a collection of English and Spanish names, and a few petroglyphs from the original settlers.
