McKee Buffalo Panel

McKee Buffalo Panel

This is one of the many awesome petroglyph panels located near McKee Springs in Dinosaur National Monument. When we visited again last month my goal was to photograph these panels around sunset which worked out really well.

A lone anthropomorphic figure on the McConkie Ranch in Dry Fork is carved next to a sandstone outcrop that is covered in colorful lichen. I spent hours on the McConkie Ranch exploring and photographing all the rock art. I’m looking forward to heading back again next chance I get.

These two anthropomorphs, known as ‘The Twins,’ mark the end of one of the trails that leads you by many petroglyphs at the McConkie Ranch. I had visited these earlier in the day when it was completely overcast, but am glad I returned after the sun started to peek out of the clouds.

Two large anthropomorphic figures at the McConkie Ranch that seem to be holding large shields. I took this photo shortly after the overcast skies that were present all morning had finally started to break for a short while allowing some sunlight to shine directly onto the sandstone walls.

Gears in the Sky

Gears in the Sky

Looking up at a few smaller petroglyph panels on the McConkie Ranch located near Vernal, Utah. One of my friends said the circular shield-like figures visible in this photo reminded him of gears, which is where the name for this photo came from. These are only a couple of the many petroglyph panels you can find on the trail to the Three Kings Panel.
