"Highlights of Recording on Mesa Prieta in 2016"
Candie Borduin, MPPP Petroglyph Recording Coordinator. MORE
At the beginning of each year, 40 trained MPPP recording volunteers are invited to participate in voting for the “best of the best” of the previous year’s recording on and near Mesa Prieta. The top twenty five selections are featured in a Land Owner Report prepared for Mr. Cook and his family. Similar Land Owner reports are prepared for other private land owners as recording on their land is completed. The most spectacular, well made, unique, well documented selections of petroglyphs and other archaeological features are featured in these reports.
