    Where were these ?

    One cool thing I got to see back about 1993 spent a year living in Honduras and spent some time in Copan they were still excavating new parts
    But they had a underground area they were digging out kinda a strange tunnel and all along one wall was carved roped off but managed to get in :)

    But hanging out places like Copan and seeing that stuff is pretty cool to think who what were people's lives really like same as the Hawaiian ones :)

    Love old history like this kinda stuff :)

    Good idea Harvey. The US SW isn't the only place with petroglyphs and pictographs...

  7. Yes, that's true, although only the southwest seems to be representing.
