Guided Walk to La Cieneguilla Petroglyphs, Santa Fe

May 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Join us for a guided walk through the La Cieneguilla Petroglyph site west of Santa Fe.  Hundreds of petroglyphs, dating from pre-contact time and the Spanish colonial era, can be found along this mesa above the Santa Fe River. Most of the petroglyphs were placed there by Keresan-speaking Puebloan people living in the area between the 13th and 17th centuries.

 A 1991 archeological survey recorded over 4,400 images within less than a mile. The area is overseen by the Bureau of Land Management and known for the great number of hump-backed flute player images and a great variety of bird figures. The site is also of interest to those tracing the route of El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, as the ancient road passed along the site.

 Gary Hein, archaeologist and anthropologist, will guide us through the site.  Directions to the parking area will be sent to registrants in the week before the event.
