Based in The Dalles, photographer Markham captured many images of local petroglyphs. This image shows a sun, two crescent moons, and a man. The full meaning of these drawings is lost, but we might surmise the two moons are a representation of a period of time. Petroglyphs were created by grinding or chiseling images into the surfaces of rocks, and can be found in many areas of the Northwest. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
