Crow Canyon, New Mexico is located in Dinetah. Dinetah is the traditional homeland of the Navaho tribe and the site contains Navajo ruins and rock art from the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. Large petroglyph panels often include both Navajo and Pueblo images. The site was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
Ebook from www.exploringrockart.com
The Crow Canyon site in San Juan County, New Mexico is well known and frequently visited. Roughly over a mile hike and 3-4 hours visitation time. The site can be viewed leisurely and the parking area includes sufficient space for a picnic lunch.
The Ebook has 37 pages of petroglyph images. If you desire to visit, do your homework (published offline and online information, topo maps, etc.) on the site and visit the BLM office in Farmington, NM. They might help you but published information will probably be sufficient.
The Ebook is designed to inform:
A researcher, photographer, artist, or writer who wants to preview the site before a planned visitation to examine the Rock Art to be seen and determine that the site fits the Research Plan and Objectives.
Interested advocates who want to review the book prior to visitation to make sure the Rock Art at the site will be interesting to them. If time is of essence, as on a vacation or a weekend, the more interesting sites can be visited, saving the other sites until later when more time might be available.
The Rock Art advocate whose objective is to “see all the sites” can use the Ebook to allocate their time to the most interesting sites and to the most interesting areas of a particular site.
And finally, the visitor who does not photograph or who visited with a malfunctioning camera, can obtain a permanent record of the site for their use.
And from my viewpoint, the Ebook serves as a personal recording (digital photo) of the site. This recording will likely outlast me and serves as a forum to discuss the site attributes with researchers, scholars, and interested Rock Art advocates who desire more information.
