Messages from the Past

Its impossible to describe the feeling one gets hiking around the west to come across an ancient cliff dwelling or a rock art panel in what appears to be the middle of nowhere. A message from the past in stone. The rocks ooze a spiritual sense. A presence, voices, the sounds in the wind of a family, a tribe, a community going about their lives, leaving art and words to their gods, and to us, on rock panels far from anywhere today. We are awed by these places and wonder how this or that sandstone, desert varnished wall or ledge was chosen for expression or living.

Come visit our blog for more on our travels to these places where our ancestral Native Americans lived and thrived. See if you can decode their messages.
