I just got home a little while ago from spending the holiday weekend in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. Of course, my main goal was to visit and find some rock art sites in the area. I managed to find a few new panels but there were still a couple that I didn’t find on this trip. The photo above is a portion of a very well known panel near SOB Hill in Devils Lane. It should be familiar to anyone who has driven the Elephant Hill Trail and made the side trip over to the Joint Trail.
Archaeology: The study of human history and prehistory through the excavation of sites and the analysis of artifacts.
