There are mines with iron hemititie in Area by Baker, OR; but this artist’s work per-dates any work of white men! Early 1800s Mountain men & trappers called this “Picture Gorge”. It has hundreds of primeval artistry.

u know…i just saw some recent ‘pictographs’ on a bridge? i think…i like the OLD ones MUCH better!
Do you know what this particular piece represents.
It is amazing when we find history like this.
One of these days, well have to hook up so I can photograph some of these great works. I’ve found very few in Oregon. It is a mad passion for me to find a cave with writings/art in/on them. Found a few caves but no art.
