We camped at a goat ranch before our trip to Clavelitos. Here is goat cheese in the making.
11/28/2007: We traveled by mule since the road had been wiped out by Hurricane John in 2006.
Hurricanes on the peninsula move tons of rocks along the arroyos.
We approach the site.
Center area of site. The huge monos are at left center. The following images are some of my favorites, but there are lots of interesting photos not in this slideshow.
Beautiful panel of fish images on the left side.
Notice the hammerhead shark at right. (LDS)
Another panel on the left side.
Enhancement brings out fish, human figure (female?) and handprints. (LRE)
A turtle and fish under another human (female?) done in black. (YBK)
Fish, turtles, human figures, a deer, and a bird. Typical Great Mural subject matter, but are these Great Mural? (LRE)
The human figures are crude with strange headdresses, but the half colored/half not figure is surely related to Great Mural. (LRE)
Magnificent mono panel. These figures are 30 feet above the ground.
A striking yellow deer. (LDS)
Handprints abound at Clavelitos. The highest handprints here mark the highest people could climb. (LRE)
The deer and yellow handprints stand out. The vertical squiggle is unusual. (LDS)
This panel is below and right of the mono panel.
Right of previous panel.
Closeup of left center.
Moving more to the right this is the center of the site. It is densly painted.
There are lots of handprints here. (LRE)
Note the black deer in the center. (YBK)
Panel on the right side.
Could this fish be a whale? (LRE)
Closeup of another panel on the right side.
A ghostly red mono. (LRE)
The black mono has a headdress. Last slide. (YBK)
