In Search of the Elusive Pictoglyph

Fixed many link problems. If you have

This page was originally intended for hikers - any and all kinds of hikers, but especially for those interested in long distance hiking. A lot of the information here is aimed specifically at people who intend to hike (or who have already hiked) one of the long trails, whether the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, the Continental Divide Trail or Canada's Great Divide Trail.

Over the past few years, our interests have grown to include other ways of exploring the world.

We both have always been fascinated by history and by other cultures and different ways of looking at the world around us. The past few years, this interest has focused on Native American history, as seen in various forms of rock art (petroglyphs and pictographs) and archaeological sites (Indian mounds, cliff dwellings, etc.)

In our travels the last few years, we've visited hundreds of archaeological sites, both well-known and relatively unknown, in an attempt to understand the people who lived here long before us. This has taken us to some really interesting and exciting places, as widely separate as Florida and Alaska; as California and Newfoundland.

Wind River petroglyphs

As outdoor people, we also love to get as close as possible to the natural world. Primarily this means looking for and watching wildlife, and photographing the beauty of the wilderness and its denizens.

Many of the places we've been combine our two major interests - hiking and archaeology - because some of the best sites are located in the backcountry, well away from roads or civilization.

If your interests coincide with ours, then welcome. If you're not a hiker, or if you're not interested in history and archaeology, then you can at least look at a few pretty pictures.

In any case, we hope you enjoy what's here. We have enjoyed putting it together.
