elmorro_1

May 9, 2015

There will be a Ranger led tour of the Monument and Atsinna Pueblo (ancestral Zuni Pueblo) built on top of the bluff. For centuries travelers stopped, lived, camped and just passed through this area because it was a source of water.  We will see over 2000 petroglyphs and inscriptions dating from the early 1600s.  Here the conquistador Juan De Oñate, carved his name on stone in 1602.  After our tour we have the use of the picnic grounds for lunch.  (Bring a box lunch – trip limit 30 – no cost)
