This is the entrance to the canyon:
Parts of the red canyon wall become dark because of reactions with the air. These sections make great writing tablets. All the Native Americans had to do was peck at the surface with a rock to produce an image. Look at the amazing variety of drawings on this section.
And this section. Actually, the fact that most of the writing in on the darker sections make it easier to search for the petroglyphs.
This group were about 30' high on the canyon wall. Don't know how they got up there.
Here are more drawings on various rocks. Some of the drawings are faded and others were partially destroyed when chunks of the soft rocks would fall off.
I took this picture because I wanted to show the layering patterns in the rocks and the naturally occurring holes.
This is the tank known as Mouse's Tank. The water here may have come from rain that fell months ago.
Another photo showing how this red rock has eroded over time.
