And those who matter don't mind.

Although not as extensive or numerous as hoped, it was nice to walk for a couple of hours in the desert at about 650 feet in altitude and in the middle of nowhere to then be in the presence of something so primitive and ancient. It was refreshing and stimulating.
My main surprise is that these paintings (if real) have not faded much if at all with years faced with wind, sun, rain, critters, and people. I say, if real, because I do not know how to test if these were not just painted there a few years ago to attract tourists even though it is part of an archeological park. I know I am probably overly skeptical but our guide did not seem to appreciate the question when posed to him.
