There are lots of little sand lizards running around , notice the one on the sign?
The McConkie Ranch Petroglyphs are world famous and have been studied by no less than the Smithsonian Institute. They are etched into Navaho Sandstone by the Fremont Indians somewhere between 1 - 1200 AD. Nothing quite like nailing down the time frame.
The owners of the McConkie Ranch graciously allow the public to visit any time and for free. It's just another bonus of living in my neighborhood. I visited a few weeks ago when it was very hot and late in the afternoon. The lighting wasn't the best for pictures but it was just about the only time I could take off to go up there. There are many more petroglyphs in this area if you have the time to look. Unfortunately I was short on time and without my knee braces so it was a relatively short hike that day. Maybe you'll have to come see for yourself!
