On the second day of our trip last week, we stopped at this petroglyph panel located near the Canaan Gap before heading down into Arizona. Not only is this a pretty interesting panel located on a flat colorful cliff face, but it appears that some kind of erosion over the years has caused these petroglyphs to become much deeper than they originally were, since I doubt they were carved this deeply. This is the first time I have come across a set of petroglyphs like this. Very cool!
