I awoke in Pecos, NM this morning at around 6 am after the long drive up from Carlsbad. I had originally wanted to visit Pecos NHP to check out the Glorietta Battlefield site, but the park was not set to open for at least another 2 hours. Instead of waiting I decided to hit the road and head over to Santa Fe to check out the Cieneguilla Petroglyphs.
The site did not disappoint. It was a short hike from the parking lot to a basalt cliff where I found hundreds of petroglyphs pecked into the rock.
