A natural stone arch, a freshwater pool, and the ruins of an ancestral Puebloan community all in one place? Visitors can go back in time when they visit El Morro National Monument in Cibola County, New Mexico. Located on an ancient east–west trail in the western part of the state, the monument preserves the remains of a large prehistoric pueblo atop a great sandstone promontory with a pool of water at its base. The location has been a meeting place for thousands of years, which is why there are over 2,000 signatures, dates, messages, and petroglyphs carved into the rock walls of the arch and nearby cliffs. To celebrate the paths less traveled in national recreation areas (these places receive far fewer visitors than National Parks), Anderson Design Group poster artists hand-rendered an original illustration in the fashion of vintage poster art and travel art. This retro design and original National Park art is available as a poster, print, canvas, mini canvas, metal sign, notecard, or postcard.
