"P" is for...ABC Wednesday 050411







petroglyphs! And, these petroglyphs are outside of Bishop, CA. You have to check in with the Bishop BLM and get directions and sign a form stating that you are driving out to see them. That's because vandals (idiots) sometimes deface them or shoot at them! They are thousands of years old and I'm reading up about them to find out what some of them mean. It is interesting to note that southwest petroglyphs seems to be in the places that hubby and I love to visit: Nevada's Valley of Fire and Red Rock Canyon, Bishop, Canyon de Chelly...some of our favorite photograph spots!

Wow, I learned a new word in ABC Wednesday today. Would probably call those as pile of rocks but your word is pretty nifty. Thanks! Would love you to visit my ABC Wednesday page here.

We once found some petroglyphs by accident. Happy find.
