agua fria national monument petroglyphs

Hike leader extraordinaire, Larry Levy, treated us to a day in the Agua Fria National Monument yesterday. Imagine walking a few miles across a field of canon balls and you get the idea of how tough it was to hike across Perry Mesa! (Not for hikers with weak ankles). Well worth it, though, if you have a love of Native American history and early mining history (Larry is a mining expert).

We visited several dwellings and also an old mining camp. Today I’m sharing two images of petroglyphs found high on a hill above the mining camp. (tough lighting conditions) Tomorrow, I hope to post a little video/slideshow of the day (maybe!).

  1. Marianne this is the area where I hike to see the Red Deer petroglyphs. I have yet to get to the “Duck” petro.

    I sure would have loved to ba along although it is getting pretty close to the snake time and the area is full of rattlers. Did you make it to the Red Deer?
