Boca Negra Canyon

Today we went on a mini-adventure
to Boca Negra Canyon. Boca Negra Canyon is a part of the
Petroglyph National Monument.
There are hiking trails to see real ancient petroglyphs
but this is not the time of year to see them.
Does hiking among black rocks in 95* heat sound appealing?
I didn't think so, either,
so we just walked around the entrance.

The black rocks are pretty neat, though.
They are black basalt bouders.

I sat on one, and it hadn't gotten too hot yet.

This looks like the desert!

We'll have to come back in October,
when the temperatures are much cooler!

Meanwhile, I can learn more about
