The Symbols on Painted Rocks

The etchings found on many boulders throughout the southwest are known as Petroglyphs.  These ancient drawings are carved by primordial man and tell stories of life many centuries ago.  Perhaps the engravings on the rocks are some form of communication or maps for the ancient people to follow.  Studying the symbolic pictures might give us a better understanding of how the pre-Columbian civilizations may have once lived and how they mysteriously disappeared.  I will share some of the photos I took of these etchings.
