Escalante Canyon petroglyphs


Rock Art of the Escalante Canyon

Join Carl Connor of the Dominguez Archaeological Research Group (DARG) for a presentation on the new findings at the rock art site 5DT2157, originally reported by members of the Chipeta Chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society. Among others on the petroglyph panels are glyphs of bear and mountain lion tracks, bison, a mounted rider, and newly recognized scratch art tipis. This site has provided new insights into the rock writing themes of Native Americans of the region and the distribution of particular Tribal styles.
