Wildhorse Canyon Petroglyph, Emery County, Utah

Recorded August 2016

These delicate Barrier Canyon Style petroglyphs are painted on the low ceiling of a shelter above Wild Horse Canyon on the San Rafael Swell. Wild Horse Canyon is one of the few clear passageways through the upturned rocks of the San Rafael Reef. The paintings are presumably contemporaneous with Great Gallery of Horseshoe Canyon located east of the site.
