Moab Area Rock Art IX | Sunday, March 20, 2011
On Sunday I headed back to Moab and met up with Marty again. This time we spent a few hours hiking around Mill Creek Canyon and searching for more rock art. Marty showed me the petroglyphs he had found previously, but we also managed to find a number of new ones, too.
This was the first rock art we came across on the hike, and the only pictograph we would find all day.

This was one of the better preserved and interesting panels we came across all day. The larger figure on top appears to have four arms.

Can you find the sheep in this photo? The desert varnish they are carved into is disappearing.

This large petroglyph panel was on the opposite side of the canyon from all the other rock art we had found.

It was another great day searching out rock art near Moab!
