It is to bad these beautiful drawings and carvings couldnt be in a museum in Colorado.

It would be so interesting to see such art work!

No they cannot remove them they belong in the cave's and the rock's they were written on. It wouldn't be anything if they were removed. I hope that they see the wrong if they ever decide to remove this ancient art for all to see and witness. It's remarkable that they even lasted this long?

Wonderful news Terry...I've seen some of these drawings while staying at a Navajo Hotel about 10 years ago. So happy that they will be protected for others to see as well.
