Frequently (and infrequently) asked questions

Location questions

  • If a site name is in "quotes", it is misnamed on purpose. Some sites are too sensitive, or I've been asked not to disclose their location.
  • The best way to protect and preserve rock art sites is through education. The internet has changed many things. People can find just about any place nowadays through the internet. Locations are shared between peers with similar interests. See Rock Art Etiquette.
  • I believe if you tell people about the history of places, they will appreciate these places more. Treat what you find with respect and leave it for the next explorer to discover. Please Leave No Trace.
  • I'm a hiker interested in history. I am not an expert on mining equipment. If you see something I've misidentified, let me know.
  • Updates on locations are appreciated. Please contact me if you have an update on a trip.
  • Please don't ask me for locations. I likely won't respond. I didn't post it on purpose.
  • Old trips are posted as I get to them or by request.
