After our trip back in to history to the Lewis homestead cabin, we went even farther back in history with a side trip to petroglyphs. Just like The Dugout, I have written about the petroglyphs before.

I was wondering how they were holding up to weather and stupid people.
Note: I did darken all of these photos which seemed to help the design come through.
My favorite one was still there.
The cow is still there.
And this horse.
And this shield figure.
Brandon gave a half-hearted re-enactment of the “medicine man”.
It looks like the most recent damage still was from 1996, at least, the ones that dated their “work”. While I’m sure some of the engravings were pretty recent, people haven’t totally ruined the site.
We had a great day… everyone talking and learning and laughing and reminiscing.
I think my favorite photo of the day had to be this one… a selfie with Vernon’s aunt! Who says selfies are just for teenagers? Maybe that’s what the petroglyphs are saying… I was here. I existed. Here’s proof!Find me here!
