Petroglyphs! So awesome.
Another first for me – Native American petroglyphs! Never before (can I recall) had I seen any petroglyphs in person. Newspaper Rock is a great place to get punched with a large display of historic rock art (writing?).
Visit Newspaper Rock on your way to the Needles section of Canyonlands or on your way out and back to Moab. It’s approximately 25 miles north of Monticello, Utah and 50 miles south of Moab, Utah. It’s a quick stop complete with a restroom facility for that productive and educational kind of rest stop. Oh, did I mention it’s free?
Two thousand years old! And it still looks clear as day. Someone translate for me!
