San Rafael Swell Rock Art VIII

Saturday, November 26, 2011

After spending Black Friday in Nine Mile Canyon I spent Saturday searching for and visiting some new rock art sites in the San Rafael Swell. After a quick breakfast in Green River I made my way over to visit the Prickly Pear Flat pictograph panel.

The Prickly Pear Flat panel contains a number of very interesting Barrier Canyon Style figures. Unfortunately, the rock surface they were painted on has not held up too well over the years.

Here’s another portion of the large panel that might be depicting rain.

Here’s a cool-looking flute player. There’s some of those flying circles at the top, too.
