16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
13-Moons Petroglyph

Many native American people look at turtle’s back as a sort of calendar, with its pattern of 13 large scales standing for 13 moons in each year. This 13-moons Petroglyph locates in Bishop, Eastern Sierra, California. The round-shape star-trail matches perfectly with 13 round-shape moons in the petroglyph.
