For a moment this weekend the past and present collided as my family visited the petroglyphs over in Parowan, Utah. This remote place has been essentially untouched for hundreds, if not thousands of years. No one is sure what the meaning behind the pictures are although some have made guesses. They could be instructions to hunting grounds or nearby settlements. They could be accounts of important events.
Whatever they are, they must have been significant and special. There are miles and miles of rock in the area and yet the petroglyphs are only found in this one very localized place.
I can’t help but think what stories are hidden within these cryptic drawings. It gives me all sorts of cool ideas for my own stories.
