We revisited the Two Rivers Pictograph site on this trip. We went there the first time we went to Ruidoso. That was seven years ago when Andrew graduated from high school. The site is under the control of the Park Service, but only costs two dollars to go in. It is located on a hill out in the middle of the desert. There are over twenty thousand etching on the site ranging from stars or hand prints to more complicated drawings like the one I think looks like Kokopelli. Archaeologists believe most come from the Mogollon people or even an earlier group. They don't know why the drawings were made, the subjects vary greatly, but assume there was some religious reason. Like every interesting place, I saw things I didn't notice before and got a lot from the visit.
The scrapper in me is trying how to utilize some of the designs on a page in a different manner.
