A hunter-gatherer who trekked through a desert oasis a hundred centuries ago left the continent's most lasting impression: the oldest known human footprints in North America.

There are only two of them - one left and one right - but the ancient traveler's path through mineral-rich sediment in the Chihuahuan Desert allowed them to become enshrined in stone, and now dated, some 10,500 years later.
