desert rock art: the trail
July 17, 2012
After walking around the inside of the Deer Valley Rock Art Center, we braved the heat outside and walked the quarter-mile trail that led us to the Hedgpath Hill Archeological Site, which is filled with 1,571 documented rock art carvings. Looking around, some of the petroglyphs were right by the trail and super obvious so they were easy to see, but others were farther up the mountain and more worn so they were harder to make out. Mounted viewing tubes helped, but it was still difficult. It’s crazy to think that there are more than 1,500 rock art carvings right in the hill where we were standing though and they were created by people so long ago. No wonder what the petroglyphs mean is still a mystery.
A ladder of some sort?
Doesn’t it look like fish bones?
Perhaps people holding hands?
