(Thompson Springs UT)
Rock art by Ute natives, ancestral Fremont, and Archaic peoples could be found by driving about 3 1/2 miles into Sego Canyon north of town. There was a small parking area on the left.
A few signs told the tale of the art spanning 3,000 plus years. Dirt paths lead to different portions of the cliffs where the rock art panels were found. Other drawings were across the road by a corral.
Further up the road was the ghost town of Sego. Remains of buildings, and coal mining stuff were located on private property; though it was supposedly visible from the road. I didn’t go to see it.
I always enjoy seeing these drawings. What do they mean? Are they messages, observations of nature, stories about life or events, or just native graffiti? Educated guesses have been proposed; but, I still wonder.
