Indian Creek Canyon

After leaving Shay Canyon I continued on down Indian Creek Canyon to find some more petroglyphs.

I started out at this large panel just above the highway. This is a cool panel as it spans two sections of the canyon wall which is separated by a large gap. Inside that gap there are even more petroglyphs!

Next to the panels above are some very cool petroglyphs, however they are very hard to see and even harder to photograph! Here’s the best shots I was able to get when I was there…

After checking out these panels, I hiked up the short side canyon looking for more rock art. I managed to find just a few more…
