The Kumeyaay Indians who made camp around Blair Valley before the 20th century left more than bedrock morteros (grinding holes) and potsherds. They also left impressive pictographs—red- and yellow-painted designs—on the face of a large boulder in Smuggler Canyon. Generations of archaeologists have puzzled over the meaning of these and other pictographs and petroglyphs (etched designs), which appear not only in the Anza-Borrego region but throughout the Southwest. The diamond-chain motif at the Smuggler Canyon site has been linked to puberty rites, but the complete meaning of these rock inscriptions may never be known.
