|The "new" boulder|
Saturday, May 17, 2014
This week on Tuesday I hiked back up to the boulder field near Johnson's Hollow in Provo Canyon and revisited some of the petroglyphs there. I first visited this site in January 2011 and reported on it last August. I was accompanied by my son, Alan, and my dog, Stretch, the dauchshund. We saw several petroglyphs I have have seen there before. And we found a new boulder I had not seen before.
This new boulder is further east and uphill of where I have looked before. I suspect there are a great many more in this area one could find with a little time and patience.

The pictographs at Courthouse Wash are primarily Barrier Canyon Style. There are also some smaller Fremont and Ancestral Puebloan petroglyphs here.

|Barrier Canyon Pictographs from Site 2|
The rock art panels in Sego Canyon (aka Thompson Canyon) are some of the best Barrier Canyon Style art in Utah. The ratio of impressiveness to difficulty of access is quite high. There are also some very high quality Fremont figures here too
These rock art panels are easily accessible by car along a paved road. Exit I-70 at the town of Thompson, exit 187, and drive north through the town and up the canyon for about 4.4 miles. There is a parking lot on the left-hand side of the road.
