This was a crazy one.....the sun was low in the sky and lit the carvings up perfect but when the sun went behind the clouds awhile the cup & rings went with it.. stubob Posted by stubob

I'm not sure if this is a known site. I've found no record of it, yet.
We noticed it as we were walking back to the beach from the burial chamber.
The sun was dropping and just caught the rock revealing a group of faint cup and rings on the western edge of an outcrop.
A nice end to our trip.
