Neon Canyon

The petroglyph panels near the mouth of Neon Canyon are easy to find and quite impressive.  They are located several hundred yards north and south of the mouth of Neon Canyon where is meets the Escalante River.

From the Upstream Panel


The upstream panel is larger and easier to find. It has literally hundreds of images, mostly fairly small spread over a panel that is a couple of hundred feet long.  This includes some relatively recent "cowboy glyphs" that appear to show the U.S. Civil War, among other things.

Cowboy Glyph
The downstream panel is also quite extensive, but takes a little more looking to find.  Both panels have art that show a variety of influences including Fremont and Anasazi.
