CARVED ROCK


The petroglyphs were carved by the Luiseño Indians, their meaning is said to be: ‘A chief died here. These are his plumes, his portrait, his sign, and the animals sacred to him.’ The Luiseño Indians who lived in Temescal Valley belonged to the Shoshoean linguistic group. The rock has been damaged by vandals.
