(nr Parowan UT)
Another site with native petroglyphs. Lots of drawings about travel, peoples, their leaders, animals, geometrics, and symbols with many meanings. Pictures extended all the way through the gap.
They are believed to date from the Fremont period when the area was inhabited for 500 to 1200 years. Both the Southern Paiute and Hopi believe those who made the drawings were their ancestors.
The location was in a passage going through the mountain that has been used for centuries. So, I suspect the creators wanted others to see them, so as to provide information or tell their stories.
I was able to camp just outside the gap, so could easily walk to see the rock art. It was an interesting place.
