Born Again Pictographs

The spectacular Born Again Pictograph site lies deep in the backcountry of Joshua Tree National Park. It is located in the granite maze wilderness of Queen Mountain and is a bit of a hike to reach. This rock shelter was once a habitation site and is covered with faded pictographs. I've used false color imagery to enhance the faint symbols.

The rock outcrop features a tunnel likely used for rites of passage rituals, where the site gets its name. Passing through the tunnel is symbolic of being "born again." This is a fantastic place.

My friends, the Dzrtgrls, came across the site first, and it was a place I wanted to see ever since. I've been out there a few times over the years.

No directions to this site.
