El Malpais National Monument
Many wonderful surprises including lava flows, cinder cones, pressure ridges, complex lava tube systems, and other volcanic features dominate the mysterious and rugged El Malpais landscape.
For more than 10,000 years, people have interacted with the El Malpais landscape. Historic and archeological sites provide reminders of the past. More than mere artifacts, these cultural resources are kept alive by the spiritual and physical presence of contemporary Indian groups, including the Puebloan peoples of Acoma, Laguna and Zuni, and also the Ramah Navajo. These tribes continue their ancestral uses of El Malpais, including gathering herbs and medicines, paying respect, and renewing ties. [more]
El Morro National Monument
Inscription Rock in El Morro National Monument, northwestern New Mexico, bears silent witness to more than 700 years of history.
Drawn here by its secluded water hole, Ancestral Puebloans, Spanish and Anglo peoples marked their passing by carving over 2,000 petroglyphs and inscriptions into the sandstone bluff. Inscription rock is a soft sandstone monolith, rising 200 feet above the valley floor. [more]
