We have been on a lot of ranger-led interpretive walks. Jacob was among the best interp rangers we've had the pleasure to be with. We took the morning tour of the quarries. Fascinating, beautiful, informative. Being a Native American and flint knapper himself, Jacob added...More

We enjoyed visiting this National Monument. It is a bit off the beaten path of I40 but was worth a stop for us as we knew one of the Rangers. We had a lovely picnic in the native garden and enjoyed watching the flint knapping...More

Who would have believed flint arrowheads from this site were traded with others from as far away as the midwest hundreds of years ago. The rangers here were enthusiastic and helpful in making our visit informative- make sure to watch the movie.It explains a lot...More

We enjoyed this very much. The rangers at the Visitors Center were probably the most enthusiastic I have met. We watched a short film and then went through their small exhibit. We were scheduled to do the 2:00 ranger led tour and was told that...More
