IN UTAH, USA
Welcome to a unique collection of drawings that represent Fremont Native American culture.
These beautifully preserved petroglyphs are just north of Vernal, at McConkie Ranch in Dry Fork Canyon. These panels cover 200 feet along a cliff face in the Navajo formation. It’s believed the petroglyphs were crafted somewhere between 1-1200 CE. They are excellent examples of Fremont Native American culture.
The images include various people and symbols along with large renditions of the various animals that populated the region. Many are also numbered, detailing where various archaeologists have worked across the site.
The petroglyphs can be easily reached by several trails with signs and ropes that mark the way. The trails are easy to traverse. The entire trek is just over a mile hike roundtrip.
