Maybe you've seen this LA Times story about some idiots stealing petroglyphs. Tragic. Hope they get those guys.

Jeez... that's tragic. They will probably end up in some private collector's living room. Those kinds of folks will go to any level, including lurking on forums such as these, to find out about cultural sites and artifacts. A good reminder to keep mum about specific locations here. Though in this case, it appears as if the stolen glyphs were part of a well-known public site. Sad.

That's nuts! Truely sad. I have some pics of that area about 20 years ago. I will try to find them.

I found the pics from the Bishop area from about 25 years ago.



looks like a "chunk" was missing back then.

Is that an alien spacecraft pictograph?

When Sandie and I went to Utah this past summer we quickly found the way to locate all the rock art sites was to buy a $4 roadmap at any gas station and there they were. Looks like vandals have been coming for generations to desecrate these sites. A real shame.
