"Rockin" Art

Great Gallery

Anthropologists and Archeologists tell us that these incredible pictographs (paintings on canyon
walls) were created by the Fremont culture of native Americans sometime between 700 and 1200AD
These particular pictographs are found in Horseshoe Canyon, part of the Maze District of Canyonlands
National Park

I put the hiker in this photo for scale purposes

The longer you sit and stare at these marvelous paintings, the more intricacies and details you discover

Petroglyphs are chiseled in the rock as opposed to being painted on the rock

ghostly beautiful. if the spirit of those people can come thru thousands of years and a blog post must have been very powerful to stand there. Art endures.
