This slideshow shows images from the walls of the cave. There are petroglyphs and some painting on the walls.
This view looks out towards the left side of the cave. By 'left' we mean left when looking into the cave. We will cover the left wall and then the back wall in the slideshow.
The wall rock is soft tuff and weathers easily. The paintings have aged poorly.
This painting is on the underside of the horizontal overhang in the center of the previous slide. It is an animal of some kind.
