#56 Three Rivers Petroglyph Site Special Gathering of Circles Calendar 2015-2016
This special calendar was made for someone at the Gathering of Circles. It is a one of a kind 13-month full color calendar, professionally printed on 10×13 card stock and spiral bound. Included are GOC dates, US holidays, and the moon cycles. Only one calendar has been printed — as a raffle item to help support this and future gatherings.
This sample is provided to preserve the original in excellent condition for you.
Arrangements to view the actual calendar can be made with Gary or Cliff.
The images contained within were made by the Jornanda Mollogon people who lived about a modern hour away from the GOC gathering site. Between 900AD-1400AD these people lived in a small pueblo along a streambed between the mountains and Rio Grande River. There they lived by farming seasonal crops, hunting and gathering wild foods, raising their families, and being close to Mother Earth. Photographs of the petroglyphs were taken during several visits in different seasons.
Please do buy several raffle tickets to support the GOC. You could be getting a one of a kind item. This calendar may be offered again in the same form or modified for future raffles in support of the GOC. Have a wonderful time here at the Gathering of Circles. Stay warm and dry. Make a new friend. Experience.
