While Petroglyph National Monument does not contain any Official Scenic Historic Markers, there are some features contained within the monument that may warrant such eventual nomination. Park Archeologist Ron Fields will discuss one such feature in this lecture; his discovery of historical wagon roads crossing the monument that once linked Rio Grande and Rio Puerco communities.
