I been promising to start this thread and here it is!
First let's start with the types of "Rock Art" and how they are made.
Petroglyphs are images carved, pecked and or cutting into rock surface.
Pictographs are designs or images painted onto rock using natural pigments.
Pictoglyphs are figures or designs on rocks that incorporate both carving and painting techniques.
Geoglyphs are also called Intaglios and these images are usually very large. They are made by scraping away surface material on the desert floor.
I've always been fascinated by Rock Art and have always loved finding them. Over the last 40+ years we've found our fair share but since my DH retired 13 years ago we've been hunting down more and more and in some remote places.
I thought I'd start out with an easy to identify panel of petroglyph. This panel was one of the first I ever saw back in 1977. We've been back many times including last fall when this picture was taken.
Can you name this panel of petroglyphs?
I bet I won't have to give any clues!
