|Description ||The rocks are dense with petroglyphs, some of which feature in an archaeo-astronomical event. I saw a token of this event in the afternoon of my visit on 15th August 2009.|
Two deliberately placed and shaped stones above the panels cast shadow daggers across different glyphs, pointing to different marks at key times of the year. A lot more information on this (and more generally) is at the website http://www.sinaguasunwatchers.com/vbarv.htm
Although I didn't witness a key event, to see these shadows appear and work their way across the petroglyphs (which were thrill enough in themselves), was a very memorable time. A random collection of visitors and a member or two of staff over the long period we were here seemed to convene a strong, warm, congenial spirit talking about what we were experiencing.
