Easy walk through an area with dinosaur footprints. East footprint has a market nearby. Because I was looking for a depression in the rock I almost missed them. The footprints are raised out of the rock. Very interesting

Just a few mile West of Parowuan Utah, a great little stop along a dirt road which was once part of the old Spanish Trail. This site is now fenced with a discriptive sign about Rock Art, Black basalt rock gives a nice contrast to petroglyph images which are displayed after the native Americans etched images into the desert varnish. Many counting and Astrolonomical images are displayed, not really a desigated hiking trail, but an interesting prehistoric site. The dirt road makes a great hike with open scenery and very little automobile activity.
