|Artifact Garden in the Guest House Courtyard at PPR.|
In the back courtyard of the guest house at the Painted Pony Resort is a stone garden. Though it is not your average stone garden with tastefully arranged rive rock suitable for meditation, rather the stone garden is composed of fragments from over 2 dozen metates and grinding stones. There are also manos, hammer stones, scrapers, and other other artifacts collected off the property included in the stone artifact garden. Started by guests of the former owner the tradition has continued and fragments of metates are added to the garden as they are discovered by guests or while working on the property.
