Petroglyphs and pictographs

About 1,000 years ago this area was home to the Fremont people, an Indian tribe.  They lived in the hills and valleys, and left behind some interesting petroglyphs (rock etchings) and pictographs (paintings on the rock surface).  Just up the road from our camp site are a whole series of petroglyphs, so we decided to take a look.

On the way up to the rocks

Lizards (up high) and people were popular images

Another lizard, some more detail

Look carefully and you can see a face

Look closely you can see a large face above a smaller body

We hope to see some pictographs in the near future.  Hope they will be just as visible….
