Petroglyph Face Up

Made famous by the late Galen Rowell who is well known for his landscape photography of the Eastern Sierra, this ancient petroglyph panel is one of the very few that faces the sky in North America. I was told that the Paiute Indian had created this piece over three thousand years ago. The location has been kept secret by the locals for fear of vandalism. Please don't ask me the exact location as finding this hidden gem in the Eastern Sierra is part of the spiritual journey.
