14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sacred Stone

Ever get the feeling that someone is looking down on you from above? Ever get that feeling that there's something more to all of this than we can put our minds around, that there's someone there to help you though the times when you don't know if you can keep going alone? While I cannot translate these petroglyphs, what I do know is that they were left as messages for future generations. Perhaps one of them says "the water is that way..." or "fear not little one, I shall see you soon..." But I do know that last night, someone was looking down on me from above, with favors plenty. Such an amazing view of hope not lost.
