Petroglyphs in South Mountain, Part I

These petroglyphs were found after walking up a large wash next to the Heard Scout Pueblo. It was a difficult hike, as opposed to taking the trail, but the reward was worth it. A large amount of petroglyphs could be seen on the walls of the wash. Clearly this was once a spot where, at one time, both people and animals congregated regularly to take advantage of a water source.

Stay tuned for more posts featuring the petroglyphs in South Mountain Park.
