Educational Inset & Area Map

Learn about historic petroglyphs and pictographs of the Gorge!

Inside the front cover of Loowit's Legend, you'll learn about the historic "rock art" created by early inhabitants of the Gorge.  Symbollic images were painted and etched on the area's basalt cliffs and were left to stand the test of time. Now hundreds of years old, these petroglyphs and pictographs remain a mystery, as no one can be sure what they mean or who put them there.
