Some petroglyph images are hard to identify; the main figure here is pretty clearly a deer, with what appears to be the sun behind it. As with many photos of this era, the image has been enhanced by tracing it with chalk - a practice that likely caused little long-term harm as the chalk eventually washed away. We are not aware of the current location of this drawing; it is likely submerged somewhere along the Columbia River.
