We climbed up a few hundred feet to view unique petroglyths. I am not really into this type of thing but it is impressive that they have lasted so long when open to the elements. So because of this and the rarity of these things...More

This is the third set of petroglyphs in the area. All of them try to tell us something... Scientists have ideas as to what they say... but, if you go there, just look into them and try to figure the message yourself ;-)

Now this is the kind of art that is priceless! Survived 1500 years in the elements. Definitely check these out as you do the auto tour starting at the quarry.

Plenty of petroglyphs here, if you want to see petroglyphs up close this will be your stop. If your camera has a good zoom, you can get 80% of the artwork from the parking area. Otherwise your looking at about 568 feet & 75 feet...More

Beaitufl red rocks with ancient petroglyphs located just a short hike from the road. There are audio tours available; site #13 is where the main ones are. Too bad it's hard to tell which ones are modern day vandalism versus which ones are real. Not...More

Not for the frail or obese, requires some climbing on a moderately steep trail. Some excellent carvings

Walk up close to the petroglyphs at the Swelter Shelter from the Freemont culture 1000 years ago. Many other sites to visit and view. Some near and others far up the cliff face.

Instead of turning lift to go to the Querry Visitor Center, continue straight until you get to a sign with a picture of the petroglyph and the number 1. Park by the sign and walk to the mountain to see a good collection of petroglyphs....More
