    Pretty cool historical record of critters from way back when. The article refers to predatory rhinos - is that legit?

    Wow...that's right about the time of Old Man's golden youth (or at least several decades before he retired to Montana).........when things were FREE in the state of Washington, and you could fish right in front of other people's caves (and they would just wave at you)!

    Nope...I've seen my raggedy old ass in the mirror, and I'm pretty sure yours looks even worse.

    I believe so. Hard to think of that up there in Europe. I watched a documentary on this cave this week. It was discovered in 1994. I was totally intrigued. 30,000 years ago!!! Nobody is hardly interested on this site on the NFR topic. I suppose I could have posted some stupid thing about "GUNS", and there would be ten pages of comments... :p

    I have seen some rock paintings here is SW Montana. They were painted under a rock overhang not to far from Silver Star. The rock is slowly falling apart. But I don't believe that they are that old. It just looked like somebody stuck their finger in some coloring and put some lines on a rock.

    Could be a hoax. It's just to much in the open.

    I have seen some paintings on bridge undersides. I don't know how old they are. Probably not 30K.

    Were they paintings of predatory Rhinos? SWF adds from Forks?

    I do believe that the SWF from Forks was a predatory Hippo, and not a Rhino. Don't ask me how I know this. I am trying to forget.

    You guys are quite perceptive. She kinda would "pass" for a cavewoman!

    She would have been extremely desirable as a mate from an evolutionary standpoint 30,000 years ago.

    Werner Herzog's film about the Chauvet Cave paintings was astounding to say the least. I think I watched it three times. I still think about what I saw on those walls. The sophistication of the art on the cave walls shows us that in some ways man has not advanced very far in the last 30,000 years.

    I know its asking a lot but for those who can sit through and enjoy a movie without lots of car crashes and guns its a must see. It also helps to be able to remember and think about stuff that happened over an hour ago.

    DRL - You could have mentioned bow hunting in the title of your post to draw more interest.
