The Real New Mexico

Via Wikipedia

It's no secret that New Mexico has a rich history. One need only hike the Sandia Mountains to see various petroglyphs embedded into the rock formations that make up the desert's vast terrain. But suppose for a second that you could journey back and see how we got here. Suppose you could learn not only the history of New Mexico, but more about its storied past in a lecture that outlines hundreds of years of history, from the pre-Columbian era to the Mexican and American takeovers.

That's what you'll get if you attend the program “Journey Into the Mist of Time: New Mexico's Colorful Past,” provided by Alan Osborne, who aims to “correct some of the stereotypes and common misinformation about New Mexico.” The event happens at the Petroglyph National Monument visitor center (4735 Western NW). Discover a Land of Enchantment you never knew existed tomorrow evening at 6:30pm. It's completely free and open to the public, so if you want to know more about the land you live in, there really isn't a better opportunity.
