Cholla Cactus Garden & Pinto Mountain Christiansted National Historic Site >
Cholla Garden
This view is looking east from the Cholla Garden toward the valley of Pinto Basin. Pinto Mountain is on the left. During the period between 4,000 to 2,000 years ago a wetter climate in the region supported a relatively stable human population (called Pinto Man). The population vanished about 2,000 years ago, leaving behind a rich archeological record. Archeological sites in the Pinto Basin wash area are protected and inaccessible without permission from the National Park Service.
