TALKING ROCKS

WHAT ARE YOU SEEING HERE?

Christmas eve, 2014, my wife Gail and I moved to central Oregon. The site serves as a sample of the wonders of Oregon. I'm particularly fond of the Rock Art we've managed to come across. Hope you enjoy. One note, a click on an image will either take you to a more elaborate page, or enlarge the image your currently looking at.

UPPER GREAT BASIN ROCK ART

WHILE NOT AN COMPETE ACCOUNTING OF EVEN A FRACTION OF WHAT IS OUT THERE, THESE IMAGES MAY SPARK YOUR IMAGINATION AS THEY DID MINE. DATING ARTIFACTS, AT LEAST FROM AN AMATURES¬† STANDPOINT,¬† IS ANYTHING BUT ACCURATE. THERE IS ONE LARGE PANEL NOTED HERE, THAT IS AT LEAST 7600 BPE. CRATER LAKE ASH IS FOUND ABOVE THE WORK AND PROVIDES A ROUGH ESTIMATE OF IT’S AGE.
