Why have all these things happened in rocks?
The Eastern Sierra is full of beautiful rocks that look like…well, you name it.
Look at a few of these photos below, they’ll make your imagination run wild. Most people cruise around here and see the same things that we do, but intepret them differently. See what you can make of these…
This one’s pretty obvious. It’s carved into the wall of a cliff near Red Rock and Chidago Canyons. We think it was carved by a local 60 years ago, but has been vandalized and shot at with guns. You can see all the holes in the rock. It’s probably five or six feet tall. This miner probably never got rich like he was hoping.
This one looks like some sort of bird keeping an eye on the White Mountains. This is at Fish Slough, right by the petroglyphs.
This is our Buttermilk Owl.
We call this one below, “The Horse in the Manger.”
Doesn’t this guy look like a sea lion? The Buttermilks, where he lives, sure as heck are a long ways from water.
E.T. landed just to say hello.
I don’t know what to say these are. There are a few faces hidden away. This one is out in No Man’s Land near the California-Nevada line by Fish Lake Valley.
This grizzly took us by surprise. We didn’t expect to see a bear in Chidago Canyon.
He is watching traffic go by on Buttermilk Road.
This is an old miner’s cabin in Nevada. I can’t explain exactly where it was, but it could be some crushing excitement. We don’t need an earthquake!
This guy watches over Cardinal Village.
This looks like two big bugs out in the valley. That’s Black Canyon in the background.
