SFNF News:

SANTA FE – The community is invited to join the Santa Fe National Forest’s Site Stewards Wednesday, Aug. 14 to explore two unusual horizontal rock art panels on Glorieta Mesa.

The petroglyphs are unique in both design and location. Both panels are easily accessible, but the trip will require carpooling in high-clearance vehicles. Sunscreen, snacks, water and closed-toe shoes are recommended.

The Glorieta rock art tour is free and open to the public, but anyone planning to attend must register in advance by calling the Pecos Ranger Station at 505.757.6121.

The tour begins at 9 a.m. at the Pecos Ranger Station, 32 South Main Street in Pecos.

Petroglyph creators were storytellers. Sign up for the rock art tour to find out what their images tell us about them and the times in which they lived.
