Half-day Hidden Mesa Prieta Photo Tour


Petroglyph National Monument has one beautiful area very few ever see. Mesa Prieta offers a remote trail to the narrow southern tip of the Monument’s 17-mile escarpment, and outstanding views of the Sandia Mountains and the Volcanoes.

You can also see about 10,000 petroglyphs – if you want to count them.

We’ll meet at the street entry point at sunrise. You’ll get a reminder call the evening before to go over your written directions and what to bring.

Can’t make a scheduled photo tour? Ask about a tour on your schedule. I can accommodate private tours with at least two participants. I’ll need at least a month’s advanced notice for Chaco Canyon and Tracking the Anasazi tours, and two weeks for everything else. Just call me at (408) 483-3782 to set up your private tour.

Because of extra planning and attention, private tour cost is 15% more than a scheduled tour, and subject to my availability.
