El Morro, New Mexico 

Somewhere along the line I missed posting my photos of El Morro, here are a few to start.

The text, which may be hard to read on the first photo say’s as follows:

Until it was passed by the railroad in the 1880’s it’s water hole made El Morro an important  stop for travelers in the Acoma-Zuni region. Numerous incrtions carved in the Sandstone date from prehistoric, Spanish, Mexican and Territorial periods in New Mexico’s history. An important example is Onate’s inscription carved in 1605.
