Sky Portal Pictographs

Quite a few hours of bushwhacking are required to reach this remote set of pictographs under a single boulder in the backcountry of Joshua Tree. It is an all-day adventure.

However, the brightness of the pictographs found here is rare. Most rock art in Joshua Tree is faded from weather and time. This set is nicely protected inside an alcove in this granite boulder. Many of the pictographs on the ceiling have a celestial nature.

No directions to this site. Enjoy my photos below. Some are enhanced with false color using DStretch. Take only photographs and leave only footprints.
