adventurenotincluded This is the well known "bird man" petroglyph located in the Black Mountain area outside of Barstow. Created by one of the local tribes of Native Americans that lived or passed thru the area. We also found a grinding slick, probably used for processing food and several shards of stone, possibly lithic flakes from tool making. Because of its location, high up on a rock facing the easily traveled wash, I like to think that it was a clan symbol of sorts, to let people know you were entering their territory.
