Exciting Pictures Of Rocks

Just a few quick photos of a petroglyph site northwest of Gila Bend, AZ. Wasn't really riding to this place as a destination, just stumbled across it.














Found some mud along the way, too.






Oh yes, and just for CapnKirk... heh heh heh

I never knew that place existed. Very cool!

What kind of tires is the V wearing?

Nice pics.

I just wonder about the tyres you have on your V. Which ones are they?

This site has more information about the rocks.

http://www.petroglyphs.us/photograph...la_bend_GB.htm

Stuff created by the Hohokum and Patayan Indian cultures. Or should I say Native American...

Tires are Heidenau Scouts- a 130/80-17 on the front, 150/70-17 on the rear. The tires provide excellent traction (I think) but the front tire has a very annoying whine between about 45-65 MPH.

Watch for a sign west of Gila Bend on I-8 for "Painted Rocks" pointing to turn north a few miles then west a bit. Pretty neat!

I think I've been there too in the 90's. Learned a new word, petroglyph.
