Early Years of the Monument
El Morro has been welcoming visitors since it became a National Monument in 1906. Early visitors stopped in the nearby town of Ramah to ask the first custodian, Evon Vogt, for a tour. Vogt, even though he was only a part time custodian, would drop whatever he was doing, leave his ranch and give visitors a personal tour of El Morro.
Did You Know?
If you walk the Inscription Loop Trail at El Morro National Monument, you can see some 2000 petroglyphs and inscriptions. The inscriptions date back to the 1600s when the Spanish traveled through the area.
