This strange beach in Alaska has the highest concentration of petroglyphs in the world, which justifies its name, Petroglyph Beach. The small chunk of coastline in Wrangell Alaska is home to roughly 40 petroglyphs and became a state historic park in 2000. The petroglyphs can mean many things, from land markers and hunting sights, to religious symbols and markings, but unfortunately there is no true way of knowing for sure what these historic etchings may mean. To find out more about Petroglyph Beach and taking a trip there just check out the pictures and information below!
