As man visited this water hole some chiseled their comments and signatures on this sandstone bluff. This particular one belonged to a governor of this region, General Don Diego de Vargas. The translation reads, "General Don Diego de Vargas, who conquered for our Holy Faith and for the Royal Crown, all of New Mexico, at his own expense, was here in the year of 1692." He died in Bernalillo in 1704 at the age of 61.
