It has been fun watching this scene develop, and to anticipate the look of the petroglyphs. The "face" in the rock outcropping is a very nice touch.

Thanks Brian! I didn't intentionally put the "face" in the rock though a lot of people are noticing it. I think it's sort of cheesy to do and I was going to paint it out once someone pointed it out to me, but then I thought there are certain times that you can see things like that in rock formations so I guess I'll just leave it.
