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. Join Park Archeologist Ron Fields and time travel back to the 1870s along historic wagon roads crossing the monument that once linked Rio Grande and Rio Puerco communities up to 1911.
