PETROGLYPHS AT TULELAKE

I  visited the petroglyphs late in the day storm clouds had been threatening all day…but it was still an amazing place to photograph.

personally I think the lack of blue in the sky makes  the cliffs even more mysterious!

The petroglyphs run along the bottom of the cliff. Native Americans would canoe to the cliffs and carve their drawings…or prayer/offerings into the soft stone.

I am guessing that this was removed by the park and was carved by modern day graffiti artists vandals.

The cliffs them selves are quite interesting to photograph!

A heart shaped indent!!

The park has put up a fence with barbed wire slanting out….as you can see they have had to add and repair the barbed wire where people insist on trespassing and vandalizing the petroglyphs.

More later
