I have arranged for a tour/hike of the Wells Petroglyph Preserve in the Velarde area. This is known to be a spectacular petroglyph area, totalling about 192 acres. 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.

Our route will take us north and west from the hot springs, hiking to the mica mine and beyond to the overlook rocks. If we feel energetic, we can continue cross-country to the summit of Cerro Colorado, 7813' high.
