    Indian Petroglyphs?

    I came across theses on top of a little series of what I think are rock caves off of a stream.
    Are they petroglyphs, and if so would you know what tribe or what they mean. I’m off grid camping in southern Utah.

    They could be. Not totally consistent with what i've seen, but if it was just some kids or teens or adults, i'd think we'd see more recognizable symbols and of course, Deb loves Dan and the year and "Class of 88" etc.

    It was also hard to get close to for a pic...crawling under rocks, through grooves and climbing on top of the rocks and that only got me close enough for a pic...not close enough to touch. They are also exposed to the elements...I think that may be why they appear to be worn? Young teenagers may be daring enough to go all the way up though!

    The location of the “writings” in the blue circle...the purple circle I just noticed a shadow of a face if you see it.
    Sorry the pics are from my phone...camera is in the shop, should get it back tomorrow or the next.

    Is there a cave nearby or something? From those pictures I
    didn't see a pointer for a direction to follow?You could be close to something. Look for some out of the place rocks?

    The pic with the blue circle showing the location of the writings is taken inside of what I believe to be intertwined rock caves.
    There is also this which I believe to be a cave further down the stream but too chicken to go in as it might be the home of the cat left it’s prints at the stream!

    I told you I have the book, the book will blow your mind with all these symbols. This is the the first book actually authentic. The picture of the rock looks like it may be pointing! You need to read the rocks facing the north/south.
    Watch out that cat may have babies! Maybe throw some smoke bombs and run! LOL
