Register Cliff, Wyoming





"Register Cliff", Wyoming". I hope you can see the signatures, for once what we call today "graffiti" is art & a true masterpiece of all the folks who were traveling the "Oregon Trail". After reading the signs there we found that the black hole in the shot there is where they would keep their items to keep them cool, a fridge of sorts. Beth ( :

That kind of refrigeration wouldn't travel very well, though . . too bad we can't send some coolers back in time for those brave people . . . maybe some peanut butter, and . . what else would be pack for them? Wouldn't it be super fun to send a 21st Century Care package to those travelers??? How surprised they would be . . and, would they have fun imagining people of the future visiting the idea of them in their cool cave . . . love & love, -g-

How fascinating that people have been writing there names on things since way back when. Proof that graffiti is NOT new. ;)

Hi Beth...

I just read your comment/question regarding photo watermarks. I use a software program to make them. Paintshop Pro. I can design my own with graphics and text then save them as PSP tubes then...use the same over and over again.

I'm sure there are free sites out there that will allow you to make a watermark and save them to your computer to copy and paste into your images.

And....don't let anyone dishearten you about the use of a watermark/copyright. They're YOUR photos. And the purpose is to discourage stealing or using an image on their site that isn't their's to begin with.

This would be really interesting to see in person. Reminds me of "Newspaper Rock," one covered in Native American petroglyphs. I think it's in Utah.

That's really interesting! The US is so much earlier colonised than Canada.
