Re: [ancient_waterways_society] Re: More petroglyphs
- Hi Susan,
Most of the rock art photos I have are from hikes in the Moab UT area
where the Colorado river was the only waterway which isn't really a
navigable river unless one is doing white water so I'm not sure how
applicable they are. The photo attached to my profile is one I got
online, it's of an owl in the Moab area, there are few representations
of owls due to their symbolism, I've never been to that site. The
Columbia river once had extensive petroglyph panels in many places but
most are now submerged in the waters behind the dams. For the most part
the Columbia river in the US is a series of reservoirs. In a few cases
examples of the petroglyphs were removed and put in museums or small
parks next to the dams. I suppose a search might come up with some
websites that have old photos. The book Native River: The Columbia
Remembered: Priest Rapids to the International Boundary by William D.
Layman has photos of some of the submerged panels plus lots of photos
from back in the days when the Columbia was wild. This site has some
photos of still visible glyphs.
And there is this book.
The few examples of painted panels I have seen in my area are greatly faded.
I have a few photos here but only a couple of petroglyphs.
