Newspaper Rock Petroglyphs

Newspaper Rock is a Utah State Monument located on State Route 211 in San Juan County, Utah.  It is in the upper part of Indian Creek Canyon and very close to the road.  The site is similar to that at Rochester Creek in Emery County in that it contains a wide variety of rock art styles that span a vast amount of time.

Pictograph styles found on this panel include: Archaic, Anasazi, Fremont, Navajo and Pueblo culture.  Many of the figures show horses and are therefore post-Columbian in date.
