Well Jiminy Christmas, I think my children’s drawings are epic but check out these Petroglyphs dating back 600yrs at the Petroglyph National Monument. Sweet hike especially for Zoey who loved leading and finding all the images. It’s also the time she showed major interest in working on the Junior Ranger workbook and earning her FIRST badge and patch! #petroglyphs #bocanegracanyon #petroglyphnationalmonument #albuquerque #newmexico #homeonwheels #homeiswhereyouparkit #rvlifewithkids #juniorranger #rvliving #optoutside #outsidewithkids #traveltrailer #nationalmonument #hikealbuquerque

Petroglyphs are an incredible form of art, making the National Monument one of the best exhibits you can visit. These drawings from 400-700 years ago are carved into the desert varnish of rock, showcasing the history and lore of Puebloans and Spanish settlers alike. Did you know that Puebloans walked hundreds of miles to Mexico to trade goods with South Americans? (Hence the Macaws)
Miles’ first solo hike! I say ‘solo’ because he wasn’t carried once. He climbed the rocks just like his sisters. We were rewarded at the top of the trail with a beautiful view of the National Monument.
On our way back to Utah, we stopped by Petroglyph National Monument. Meili was super excited to get another junior ranger badge to add to her collection. Not all members of the family shared her level of enthusiasm.
