Here’s a pretty well-known panel located in Nine Mile Canyon, among the many other rock art sites, known as the Family Panel. I guess that someone thought this lineup of figures could possibly represent a family, assuming that the family includes a scorpion, a desert bighorn sheep and some kind of shield-like figure 😉 No matter what this panel might represent, it’s still pretty cool to look at and study.
