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!
