Hidden Mountain

Hidden Mountain west of Los Lunas, New Mexico holds one of the greatest archeological secrets in New Mexico. The "Los Lunas Decalogue Stone", which is a Phoenician version of the Ten Commandments was carved in about the 1st maybe 2nd century BCE. If the stone is in fact legitimate, it is a history changing piece of evidence for the early arrival of Europeans to this continent.
