if the day begins with hashbrowns…it’s gonna be good. but lets not dwell on breakfast…
the hike to the petroglyphs was easier than i expected, so we went a little farther. i have to say….i had a good time but i was sad i didn’t see more wildlife. not one single raptor. and no snakes.
but this was a fun surprise:
a cairn. i love these things. i tried to keep them up in my back yard…but certain fast moving cinnamon bears kept knocking them over.
and of course, the whole reason we went to this site:
.ooh, yeah baby, petroglyphs.
ancient peoples. writing about the sun, mankind, eternity, and mammals. gotcha. scholars don’t really know for certain what the icons mean, but they are all over the world. sun sign. biped. random mammal.
that sounds about right. they were pretty much everywhere so many centuries ago.
but, there too, also… (that’s how alaska governors speak)
there, too, also,…were some pretty scenes.
it was a pretty and peaceful hike.
no dogs welcome here, but in retrospect…it would have been too dangerous. venomous snakes, lizards, scorpions, nasty-ass-boars, mountain lions, prickly-spiny things. it made me definitely consider moving home so the dogs can be safer on a saturday morning walk.
