We usually ascribe some sort of mystical, noble, meaning to these ancient drawings.

But, realistically, couldn't they just as easily be the scribblings of a child, similar to the "Chalk on the Driveway" art of today's children?

The interpretations provided by our National Parks Service of these symbols are really pretty funny.

"Mystical Bat-Woman"

"Powerful Spirits"

"This is a magic place."

But maybe the drawings are a bit more mundane

"We're really bored and kind of thirsty"

or the plotting and planning of children, imagined for some long forgotten game.

    OK, getting into the spirit of things, I see a line dance, a goat chasing a spring, and EEF loves TIFF. But wait....isn't that a gondola getting ready to head up the ski lift? These people were thinking WAY beyond their time! I absolutely LOVE your narratives.....your photos rock, too!!
