A Different Sort of Art Exhibit...

I had read about Petroglyphs National Monument in a book recently, but I have never actually heard anyone talk about it-so I need to put it on the map. For any of you traveling up I-40-it’s worth the stop. There is an area of town overlooking the city of Albuquerque that is home to over 1,500 petroglyphs-some of which are more than 1,000 years old-now that’s pretty impressive-I don’t know too many artist who can make that claim. It was really neat to walk around the area and see the rock carvings-I have no doubt I missed more than I actually saw-but it was a really fun experience….and like most art work-I still am not totally sure on the meaning behind some of the pictures.
