El - Morro - New Mexico

El Morro National Monument, also known as Inscription Rock is located on US 53 in western New Mexico.   There is a stunning sandstone bluff,  with a pool of water that provided drinking water for people for many hundreds of years.  More information is available at 

Natives began putting pictographs on the stone walls near the pool over a thousand years ago.  Spanish, American, and other travelers have also added their own inscriptions to the stone.  The top of the bluff has the remains of a settlement dated twelve hundred years old.  The video show the pool, inscriptions, vegetation, and inspiring view as I climb around and up the monument.
