Peter Wolf Toth Whispering Giant

On our way back to California we visited the Peter Wolf Toth Whispering Giant in Las Cruces (for the fifth time). The sculpture is in the Apodaca Park. and is still in excellent condition. What a wonderful tribute to the Native Americans. Thank you, Peter Wolf Toth.
