Lava Beds National Monument, California- Petroglyphs... - David Bacon, Dnb1309025.jpg

Lava Beds National Monument, California- Petroglyphs carved into the rockface of Petroglyph Point by the ancestors of the Modoc people, Paleoindians. They were carved at a time when the rock was an island surrounded by Tule Lake. With over 5,000 individual carvings, this site is one of the most extensive representations of American Indian rock art in California. The images, a sacred part of the spiritual practices of native people, may be over 6000 years old. - David Bacon - 2013-08-15
