At Hueco Tanks State Historic Site near El Paso, the rocks allow for challenging hiking and bouldering, and provide special places for adventurous visitors, like Cave Kiva.
The park has many fragile ancient rock art pictographs, so visitor access is controlled and limited. Reservations are required, and all visitors must view an orientation video about protecting historic resources and rock art. Visitors come away with a stronger appreciation for the care needed to preserve these important cultural works. Here a group of hikers pause inside Cave Kiva to view the precious mask pictographs.
