One weekend Ms. Rosemary and I (Ms. Karen) went for a hike in search of the Picture Rocks petroglyphs not far off Picture Rocks Road in the Tucson Mountains. Jim and I had heard about them for 12 years, but we never could pinpoint exactly where they were. Perhaps this has a purpose. Every time we would drive up Picture Rocks road we would look for a sign. There is no sign. Why? This is a good thing for two reasons. (1) They are located on private property. (2) There are marks of vandalism due to their easy accessibility and some people’s disrespect for private property and ancient artifacts. These petroglyphs are over 1500 years old.
We were thrilled to locate these petroglyphs, and I am going to tell you where they are. It’s just that I am going to take you the long way around to find them. It just seems more like a real discovery when you have to hike 4.5 miles to get there. Please be respectful.Read More
