Three Rivers Petroglyphs Site - Johnny Bravo?
above: When reviewing the footage of this visit, we couldn't help but think of Johnny Bravo as soon as we saw this one.

There are over 21,000 petroglyphs (rock carvings) at three rivers. The petroglyphs were carved by a prehistoric group of Native Americans referred to as the Jornada Mogollon.

Three Rivers Petroglyphs Site - Hummingbirdabove: For me, the hummingbird petroglyph is one of the most artistic.

There are two hiking trails. One of the trails is about half a mile long and takes you past many of the petroglyphs. It's a target rich environment! They are everywhere!

While leashed pets are allowed in the picnic and camp areas near the Visitor Center, no dogs are allowed on the trails. So, Bill hangs out with Viva at one of the picnic sites near the visitor center.

Bonus Gear Tip - My Favorite Frypans EVER

I love both of these frypans so much that I sometimes use them in our home kitchen.

While the Pinnacle and the Bugaboo frypans by GSI are similar in size and general appearance, there are some notable differences.

The Pinnacle is made of hard anodized aluminum.
