Ancestral Puebloan petroglyph panel near Colorado River, Utah
Ancestral Puebloan petroglyph panel near Colorado River, Utah. The bear print looking thing is common in this area and I believe it represents a clan or family who lived in the area. It is possible that bears came through this area on their way to somewhere else.
Ancestral Puebloan petroglyph panel near Colorado River, Utah.  Anthropomorphic figure.
Ancestral Puebloan petroglyph panel near Colorado River, Utah. Anthropomorphic figure. The two headed deer is most noticeable. The deer is prey and has two heads, one in each direction. This is because of where it is located. This panel has a sheer cliff above it for several hundred feet, and a river on the other side. There is nowhee to run and I think the two headed deer represents that you must watch from both directions at this location.
