Summary: Multiple panels of Native American rock art high above Utah Scenic Byway 279 (Potash Road) in Utah

On a towering rock wall on the western side of Utah Scenic Byway 279 (also called Potash Road) are panels of Native American rock art. The motifs are many metres above the road level, as a result of talus being remove when the road was constructed.

Some of the men depicted at the rock art site are carrying bows and arrows and shields.

There are hundred of motifs across a few separate panels.

On a separate panel (which I missed) is a big bear petroglyph, which perhaps represents a hunting scene (image credit: gjhikes.com).
