"Born Again" Pictographs

Hidden a few miles into the granite maze wilderness of the Joshua Tree National Park lies the "Born Again" Pictograph site. It isn’t an easy site to reach but this rock shelter was once a habitation site and is covered with faded pictographs.

The rock outcrop has a tunnel that was probably used for rites of passage rituals. Hence the name for the site. It is an impressive find worth the effort to reach.

My friends, the Dzrtgrls, came across the site first and it was a place I wanted to see ever since. If you go out and visit it, please respect it and leave it better than you found it.
