A MISSED POST - Painted Rock


 I had posted about the grey fox we saw at Painted Rock but forgot all about sharing the petroglyphs we saw.  There are many, many of them.  It's so unfortunate that some modern graffiti is mixed in.























 

 The signs are self-explanatory.





 This is a place we are going to definitely return to.  The turn off Hwy 8 is 11 miles west of Gila Bend and then the road in is another 10 miles.  The park costs $8.00 a night.  It has concrete table and huge fire pits.  There are at least 50 sites and a group site.

We love looking at petroglyphs but not that stupid graffiti.

Those are really neat. Just don't understand why people have to destroy things with graffiti.
