Petroglyphs

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 7 January 2015 in Art & Design.

The Holly site has one more treat in store. Luckily, a ranger happened by and showed me where these are located under the rock shelf. With the glare of the sun on the rocks around there, I wouldn't have seen them.

I have already had the opportunity to observe petroglyphs in Jordan and it is always moving to see these petroglyphs dating several centuries
