I'm always fascinated to wood carved and ice sculptures, but seeing a stone art was neat! Just imagine standing in the location where people long ago carved those messages in the stone. Newspaper Rock is the earliest form of communication. It's amazing to see in person what's been around for a long time. The writings are all still very visible they are great representative drawings of ancient writings..
