Incredible Petroglyphs at La Cienguilla Near Santa Fe


While staying near Santa Fe, New Mexico, we visited the La Cieneguilla Petroglyphs. These glyphs are incredible evidence of the early inhabitants of the area. The over 4,000 drawings offer a view into the life and lifestyle of these ancient peoples.

Do you enjoy seeing historic artifacts?

During our 2018 RV adventure through parts of America's southwest, we made a stop in Santa Fe, New Mexico. One of the largest collections of petroglyphs in the area, La Cieneguilla, is near Santa Fe, so we off we went.

We had fun hiking and exploring along a rock wall made of boulders and large rocks. It is estimated that there are over 4,400 "mysterious drawings" all within a one-mile area. Some of the figures are thought to date back to as early as 8000 BC. For us, seeing petroglyphs is one way to try to imagine what life was like many years before our time!
