McConkie Ranch Petroglyphs

About 1,500 years ago the Fremont Indians used rock art as expressions of their life.  Many of these are easy to find on rock walls around the Vernal, UT area.  Some of the best examples are on the McConkie Ranch, a private ranch but open to the public.  We visited there, and were amazed by the amount and variety of petroglyphs (= means etched in rock, not painted).

Here you can see the mountain path and one of the petroglyphs
