This is just a quick and short report from my after-work excursion today. Earlier in the day I learned about the location of a new petroglyph panel, known as the Deer Creek Petroglyphs, which happens to be located near my house, so I set out this evening to visit it and get a few photos. I tried to time my visit so that it would be close to sunset in hopes that the late sunlight would be shining right on the panel, but apparently I was too late since it was completely in the shadows when I arrived. Good thing it’s close to home, because it will be easy for me to try again! Here’s a few photos I took.

At the parking area right? There are some really nice ones up the canyon a few miles. Plus some great ones on the cliff face above.
I’ve visited the petroglyphs in Dominguez Canyon on many occasions. Always a great local hike 🙂
