Check this out #5

Another exploratory hike through the volcanic tablelands in Bishop led us to some ancient petroglyphs.  Namely, Sky Rock.  As it's name implies, the rock faces the sky, making it very difficult to locate.

This particular petroglyph site is kept hush-hush by the local rangers, and even trying to find directions on the internet proved impossible.

We were lucky enough to bump into a guy bouldering who was filming the rock and after inviting him to join us, he told us about it.  After some other investigating, we located the rock which was quite magnificent.

Check it out!

Apparently the true meaning of this site has been lost through the ages--or at least thats what they tell us!  Amanda said it is instructions on how to make a pizza.  She may be right.
