Mappery For the love of maps


Mark Safran sent us this pic along with a claim that it is the oldest Map in the Wild ever.

“I win the best #MapsInTheWild!!!!
Or maybe the oldest? Here is a petroglyph along the Colorado River in Utah clearly showing a map of the river!!! #maps #cartography #rivers #petroglyphs”

I think he may be correct!

A confession, I stopped at this site before we started Mappery and didn’t notice the map of the river because I was too busy looking at the figures!
