Some stops we plan. Others we do not. We were speeding along highway 8 to the California border so it was not as if we were anticipating any stops. Then I saw the sign for the Painted Rock Petroglyph Site and we had to stop.
The detour is only a few minutes off of Highway 8 and the trail takes an even fewer number of minutes to walk around the mound of stones that form the petroglyph site. Faint etchings remain in the form of goats, spiraling snakes, and other animals.
I suppose, I should leave a little note to myself: there are camping sites right next to the rocks. While we still have ground to cover, we’ll have to keep these cheep camp sites in mind for the future. Reader, this was a note for me. If I arrive at the campground and discover that you took the last campsite, I will give you a very salty look. And you will think: That person is weird.
