Newspaper Rock, an Earlier Form of Alphabet

Fascinating petroglyphs dot the entire region around Moab in Utah.

These petroglyphs, called ‘Newspaper Rock’, are just off the highway when driving from Moab down to the south entrance into Canyonlands National Park. (Map at the bottom of this post.)

(Note: My camera photographed everything with a golden cast, while Al’s camera showed the rocks as an adobe pink tone, accounting for the difference in colour between these photos.)
