Surprise Rock Pictographs

In early 2013, I was out hiking in the backcountry of the Wonderland of Rocks in Joshua Tree National Park and came across this solitary boulder with petroglyphs and pictographs. They are inside of a concave, hollowed-out section of a large White Tank monzogranite boulder along what could have been an ancient trail. The Serrano and Chemehuevi last used this area.

This is an exciting site. Some of the petroglyphs and pictographs seem to have been chalked. Please do not chalk (or touch) any pictographs. Touching them wears away the pigment.

No directions to this site.
