Bella Coola petroglyphs

Chris Corrigan
is presently up in Bella Coola, on the northern coast of British Columbia. I'm very excited to read:

...we hiked up to the incredibly impressive petroglyphs up Thorsen Creek.  These are old, some carved as long ago as 3500 years by Sylvia's reckoning.  There are more modern ones as well, made with metal implements, and consisting of thinner lines.

I haven't seen too many of BC's petroglyphs shown online, so it's very exciting to view Chris' gorgeous photos on his Flickr pages. I've long wanted to see this part of this province and now even more. Thanks, Chris!

Apologies to anyone who tried to make comments and found it shut off. I discovered it just now, I must have accidentally unchecked it.
