Description: The rock art images at Pictograph cave consist of anthropomorphs, zoomorphs, and geometric designs painted with red ochre on the wall of a large, collapsed lava tube. Pictographs appear most similar to the North Oregon Rectilinear Style and may date from beyond 2,000 years ago to Historic times. The contrast from the high desert environment surrounding the cave to its interior environment is fascinating and certainly held considerable mystery to the prehistoric inhabitants of the region. The rock art images are even more interesting when viewed in this unique setting.
