Three Rivers Petroglyph Site, New Mexico

The Three Rivers Petroglyph site is northeast of White Sands National Monument, along US 54 between the towns of Carrizozo and Tularosa in New Mexico. The petroglyphs are attributed to the Jornada Mogollon peoples and date between 900 and 1400 AD. It is estimated that there are over 20,000 petroglyphs at the site.

The light was quite flat under overcast skies at the beginning but the sun broke free from the clouds just before sunset providing much better light.

Also on Pbase, is a good set of black and white images of the Three Rivers petroglyphs by Paul Wilson:
