Summary Author: Tom Wildoner 

Shown above are the first petroglyphs I've ever viewed outside of a museum. Thus, they were particularly impressive to me. They can be found in Capitol Reef National Park, in southern Utah, not far from the visitor center complex. These petroglyphs were created by the Fremont and Ancestral Puebloan people, roughly 3,000 years ago. Human figures (anthropomorphs), deer or game animals, circles and other markings can be identified. Photo taken on April 16, 2018.

Photo Details: Canon EOS 6D camera; Canon EF70-200 mm, f/2.8L USM lens + 2x III; 1/2000 second exposure; ISO 1000; f/16; 400mm; slightly cropped.
