Self published book about the author's journey of discovery and study of a triangular shaped petroglyph located in the Sandia Mountains near Albuquerque, New Mexico. The author hypothesizes and argues that the petroglyph served as a base for a gnomon used to observe and mark the solstices, and possibly other times of the year in the calendar of prehistoric puebloan peoples.
