Native American Petroglyphs at Newspaper Rock near Canyonlands National Park

Newspaper Rock located near Canyonlands National Park is a sandstone formation that has one of the largest known collections of Native American Petroglyphs. It is believed that the oldest drawings are up to 2,000 years old. Over the years when Native Americans passed through the area, they would add to the collection.  There are many different images that have been engraved into the rock, there are buffalo, deer, horses, and human images to name a few.  Newspaper Rock is truly a wonderful and historic site. 
I have photographed a large collection of images of the petroglyhs on Newspaper Rock.  You can see those high quality images by following the link to my website:  Newspaper Rock at
