After exploring and photographing Shay Canyon for a while, I continued my search in Indian Creek Canyon to see if I could 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 are 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 are the best shots I was able to get while I was there.

After checking out these panels, I hiked up a short side canyon nearby looking for more rock art. I managed to find just a few more petroglyphs before continuing my drive into Canyonlands National Park.
