Along Highway 313 is an un-signposted rock art site, at the base of a tall cliff. There are a couple of separate panel: one of them has three bighorn sheep, with what may be a baby sheep beneath the larger ones.
To the left of the the sheep is a five-pointed star and an animal with a body, and near these are some additional figues including a tall person and a spiral.
Further to the left and ona separate panel is the Intestine Man, the figure after which this site is named. It’s an anthropomorph displaying what seems to be be a detailed depiction of human intestines (images below from ghikes.com).
The rock art at this site is in the Barrier Canyon Style (BCS), a distinctive style of rock art which appears mostly in Utah.
Getting to Intestine Man Petroglyph site
The site is along Highway 313 which is north of Moab (the junction is next to the Moab Giants), about 2.7 miles (4.5km) from Highway 191. There is a small turn-out on the left which has enough space for 2-3 cars, and a faint trail on the opposite side of the highway leading to the cliffs. Note that the two panels are on the left and right hand side of the trail.
