Caption Contest: What Does This Cave Engraving Mean? - 19
We found this petroglyph earlier this month in a cave above Idaho's Middle Fork Salmon River.
The cave art was probably rendered by a member of the Sheepeaters—the band of Western Shoshone that specialized in hunting bighorns—at least 150 years ago. Is it a cry for help from a cave-bound spouse, waiting for her brave to return? Or a hunter recounting the rams he has killed? Write the most imaginative caption you can in the comments section. The best entry will win a Gerber field knife sharpener.
Contest ends October 31.
