Three Rivers Petroglyphs, New Mexico

We considered heading out to New Mexico this month to visit family, but our trip got delayed.  We’ll go again soon I’m sure, but it got me looking through old photographs and remembering some of our adventures out there.  On our way back from a trip to White Sands, NM we came across this:

And then this (the sign pretty much says it all):

trails lead you around the petroglyphs and many are marked

I’m not sure why I didn’t post these pictures before, but upon giving them a second look decided to share.  I mean, there could be the answers to some of the mysteries of the universe contained in these cryptic scratchings.  Maybe someone cleverer than me can decipher their meanings!
