Petroglyph National Monument
From 300 to 700 years ago, this was the homeland of the Ancestral Pueblo Indians. Long after the Ancestral Pueblo dispersed, their petroglyphs remained. Petroglyph National Monument preserves more than 20,000 examples of rock art. Most were pecked into the dark surface of basalt boulders with another stone or a rudimentary chisel.
