We do provide directions to the Petroglyph National Monument is
Albuquerque, New Mexico which is well known and frequently visited. The
site can be viewed leisurely and the parking area includes sufficient space
for a picnic lunch. Relax here. The trails have a small amount of elevation
but are well traveled and relatively easy. You can see a large number of
petroglyphs here without extreme exertion.
The Ebook has 131 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 a BLM office in Albuquerque or the Visitor's Center at
Petroglyph National Monument. They will 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
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.
