Pictures from the past

On a walk-about a few days ago I was elated when I came upon a group of pictographs on a sheltered section of cliff, and then greatly saddened when it became apparent that some of them have been severely vandalized.

I have not been able to uncover much information about these (other than they may be as old as two thousand years) and after seeing the damage that has been done here I have concluded it’s probably just as well that there is not much available.

I choose not to specify the location of these and will simply be content to show what they look like for those who may be interested.

These are very vivid

in color because they are

sheltered by a rock

overhang.
