Interesting petroglyphs along a dry waterfall and arroyo.

Started my journey right after I park on the dirt that passes under the interstate. Headed north up the hill passed an old mine and continued until I reached the arroyo. Climbed around the arroyo to see the different petroglyphs. Good views of the Rio Grande valley below.
