Titel: Newspaper Rock in Utah

On the way to Canyonlands National Park Needles District, on the east rim. The carved facet is located along State Route 211, Indian Creek Valley, San Juan County, Utah, USA.


Newspaper Rock State Historic Monument is located some 25 miles (40 km) north and west of Monticello and south and west of Moab in eastern Utah, western United States. The Monument features a flat rock with one of the largest known collections of petroglyphs.

The petroglyphs were carved by Native Americans during both the prehistoric and historic periods. Some glyphs depict riders on horses. While precisely dating the rock carvings has been difficult, repatination of surface minerals reveals their relative ages. The reason for the large concentration of the petroglyphs is unclear, making the rock somewhat of a mystery.
