More information about the preserve can be found at https://www.mesaprietapetroglyphs.org.  The cost per person will be $35, which we pay to the preserve (this is their group rate). Starting time at the preserve will be sometime early in the morning; I've asked for a 9:00 AM start, before the heat of the day.
