  • One wonders what the newspapers (hieroglyphics) said. Perhaps these were more eternal statements by the natives.  more »

  • Amazing slice of history. Hard to believe that it has lasted through all the centuries. Signs are very informative.
  • Awesome piece of history literally carved into stone at this monument. The site has restrooms and is a great place to stop and experience.
