Do you have picture or videos of the park that you think might be enjoyed by visitors to our website? If so, please email us with caption and credit information. We'll send you an email if we post your media on our site. Any different views of the church are especially welcome as it has been photographed so much we are seeking new ways of "seeing" it. We look forward to hearing from you!
Special music feature: a video by Granville Automatic filmed here at Pecos NHP. Granville Automatic is Vanessa Olivarez and Elizabeth Elkins, who write and perform songs based on their shared love of history. In this case, they tell a story about the Civil War Battle of Glorieta Pass in New Mexico, which is an important component of Pecos National Historical Park.
Their name comes from the 19th-century typewriter: Vanessa is a collector. They have a quiet, lyrical sound devoted to telling stories about history. Their musical influences include Lyle Lovett, Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris and Willie Nelson.

For a look at the behind-the-scenes video for Granville Automatic's "Glorieta," please click here. You'll experience not only the beautiful music they make, but also their sense of humor, cleverness, and mutual respect.

Did You Know?
This bison portrait, drawn in 1554, comes from the Lopez de Gomara history. The Spanish were struck by the size and power of the animals. Much later, on the Santa Fe Trail, bison were at first a major point of interest to travelers and soon became a commodity (prized for their hides) and were slaughtered by the thousands.
