Photos of Petroglyphs in Utah

What's New
Southwestern Utah is at the western edge of the area occupied by the Anasazi Indians nearly a thousand years ago. This page has photos of the petroglyphs they made along the Anasazi Valley Trail, located just north of Santa Clara, a suburb of St. George, UT. The southern end of this trail is accessible from just outside Santa Clara on Old Highway 91, with a sign indicating the Tempi 'po 'op Trail. The trail follows the rim of the Santa Clara River gorge and passes a multitude of ancient Indian petroglyphs. The site also has photographs taken of the petroglyphs in the Little Black Mountain Petroglyph site located south of St. George, UT, and the Valley of Fire in Nevada. Larger versions of these photos can be viewed by using a mouse rollover or by using the Slideshow below. See all TheWorldinLight has to offer at Destinations and Topics.
