Legend Rock Petroglyph Site


This is one of the finest sites for prehistoric rock art in Wyoming. 283 petroglyphs have been found here, depicting bison, elk, humans, and a flying jackrabbit. Not much is known about the people who pecked these into the rock, but it is suspected that these had shamanic significance.
