T is for Three Rivers Petroglyphs

 18 miles north of Tularosa, New Mexico on highway 54 is where you will find Three Rivers  Petroglyphs. This is truly an amazing place, with a small campground and a trail up a small rock covered hill where there are over 20,000 petroglyphs (yes 20,000).  When you get to the top of the hill they seem to be everywhere, in front of you, behind you, and on each side. The site is overseen by the BLM, and their brochure states that the people who did the petroglyphs are unknown, but there are two distinct styles, one is scratched and the other is chipped.  Take a year and travel around New Mexico, you will love it.  Post # 20 on ABC Wednesday.

  2. Wow, I would LOVE to see those! I bet there's a real sense of antiquity in that place!

    On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week. :)
