I found the workshop more interesting than Unity Temple but alas I'm so happy it is finally getting inscribed. That discussing 2 years seems pathetic seeing how so many lousy "not inscribe" sites are overturned instead. I will visit Falling Water next month.

The epicenter of the recent M 6.4 earthquake in California was Ridgecrest, which hosts the Coso Rock Art National Historic Landmark with more than 50,000 petroglyphs, the highest concentration of rock art in the Northern Hemisphere (Wiki). Unlike the nearby Carrizo Plain National Monument (which stunned Californians a few months ago with its "super bloom"), Coso Rock Art has never officially been considered for a WHS, much due to the fact that it now lies within a Naval Air Weapons Station. But Coso Rock Art is one of the most valuable cultural heritages we have in California. Just worried about its state after the earthquake, from far away in Poland.

I am sure it's fine. At worst a couple large rocks/boulders with petroglyphs shifted. I doubt there was any noteworthy damage. You are right though about Coso Rock Art District, it really would be an excellent world heritage site.

Wow, another one, this time M 7/1, just hit it. Perhaps another couple or more boulders shifted. Hope not any more earthquakes.
