Standstone Bluffs 4

Red Rock National Conservation Area
  • sandstonebluffs3-014  This is one of the more unusual "Petroglyphs" that I have seen.  When we first found it, we were not sure if it was an actual petroglyph or a naturally occurring pattern.  In the last four photos you can see that the pattern was pecked into the surface and then possibly painted over with a pigment that was high in iron resulting in the brown coloring over the pecked areas.
