For untold centuries this muted earth-red boulder, sloughed off the basalt rim above, displayed a complex array of archaic petroglyphs. The winds, dust, rain, and snow of the Summer Lake basin patinaed this roughly textured stone and its carvings. White explorers and settlers for nearly 200 years left it untouched, in peace. Recently intentionally shot with a gun, four times, the surface now marked with bright gray bullet pits. This complex place and its boulder now become witnesses and bearers of stupidity and arrogance. In addition to offering its deep beauty.
