    Fountain Bluff Petroglyphs

    I was saddened to see the damage that vandals have done to this historical place..how thoughtless to defile such an importatnt historical area..

    I didn't hike up to the higher second batch..the rocks were pretty slippery and I was afraid I just might end up in a mess. Did run into a nice group of young folks that were rock climbing a little further south..I think they would have probably given me a hand..but hated to ask!

    The pics are unedited and in no particular order..I hope to get them sorted, edited and put into a decent set of field notes today.

    here is a link about the site - from my favorite publication (boy will this be missed)

    the damage from Vandals is clearly visable in this and the next shot
