Petroglyphs in Keyhole Canyon.

Here are the petroglyphs that we photographed at Keyhole Canyon yesterday. 5/22/2010
The rock there is a type of granite and I thoroughly enjoyed climbing around on the rock faces photographing the rock art.

Me, climbing up to get a photo of some Petroglyphs.

The rock is a type of granite called Quartz Monzonite.

Desert Bighorn Sheep were always a popular subject for Petroglyphs.

This reminds me of a Jelly Fish!
This was one of the highest from the desert floor.

The turtle in this photo is interesting. The Desert Tortoise was a
food source for the Anasazi and Paiute Indians.

This petroglyph of a Lizard is my favorite!

There were also some Pictographs.

Another Pictograph.

Here is a website that talks about possible explanations about the rock art in Keyhole Canyon.
