petroglyphs in grand gulch tributary, utah. Gerald Trainor photo.


The first three images on this page are found on boulders in a Grand Gulch tributary. They appear to be mostly San Juan Basketmaker style. The same location also has a kokpelli figure and a shepherd's crook near it, both pictographs. There are also a series of mud hands of different sizes in an alcove.

The next three photos are from a different tributary of Grand Gulch. These pictographs are well-preserved for the most part, with deep, rich colors.










pictograph of man with carn stalk- grand gulch tributary, utah. Gerald Trainor photo.
There are a number of "bent knee figures" at this particular panel (see bent knee figure on Grand Gulch Rock Art- Page 1). This one holds a stalk of corn? This figure has been vandalised, apparently in modern times.
