Parowan Gap, Utah Petroglyphs

1995 07 04 Parowan Gap 220100_2912One day in 1995 we stopped with the kids at Parowan Gap to see the petroglyphs.As we looked around at the myriad of places covered by these ancient people, I chanced to look up across the street to the other side of the Gap, near the top of the rock and saw this bright yellow moss calling my name.

My kids, ever willing to do the fast, hard climbing, took the camera and took this picture of a man.

Always look for anything that is off in your mind.

That’s what LaVan taught me, and there was the face.

Have a good camera handy.

There are, oh, so many more glyphs so close, you could almost take them from the car, but don’t, you will miss the fun ones under the grasses.
