We Already Have a Wall. A Big Ugly Wall...

California already has a wall on our border with Mexico. A wall that stretches as far as the eye can see (and further). If you don't live near it, or have never seen it, I guess how it looks doesn't matter much to you. However, if you have seen it, it looks like a big long scar across the landscape. Politics aside, it is ugly...

This scene was just screaming to be black & white

What does that sign say?

HA! I got closer than 100 feet...

Another Amazing Unknown Pictograph Site - Joshua Tree National Park

I've never heard so much as a peep about this site. It is obscure to the point that it isn't even a secret.
It also contains some symbols that I've never seen anywhere else.

This is not in the same area as the pictos in this post. I just liked the photo and needed to work it in somewhere.

There are a lot of boulders that look similar to this one in the area. After sticking my head in several of them, bingo!

It was partially hollow. 

 The other side of the boulder.

 A new symbol to me. Something to do with females and fertility, me thinks. 

Two layers of pictographs. The first and third symbol are solid, while the second and fourth are totally hollow, including the vertical parts. All four of them are attached to a horizontal bar on top.  I wonder if this is related to the Red Diamond chains hanging from the horizontal bar in the next photo?

The four symbols in the previous photo, and the three diamond chains in this one, are representative of "female." So maybe both are part of a female puberty initiate ceremony. If you do follow this LINK, it will take to my post relating to that subject, and this photo. If you don't, no problem...

 This spot clearly had old pictos in it.
