A short distance from Thompson UT. Easy to find a a photo op for sure. Continue up the road to more art and a cemetery and an old grave yard.
My daughter wanted to check this place out. after leaving Moab, It is one exit EAST on I-70, then just 4-5 miles north of the town of Thompson. It is remote but very very cool. We thought we would be the only ones there, but we actually ran into some other folks too. Check out the Indian drawings and then... 更多

Honestly, Thompson, Utah looks like the sort of place they'd find a body on an episode of the show True Detective. But if you keep going on into Sego Canyon you'll find some of the coolest petroglyphs and pictographs you'll ever see. I highly recommend going! Fun for any and everyone.

Three different eras and styles. Excellent, low-key site. Please treat with respect and sat. Behind the fences and enjoy the amazing history.

This is a very low-profile site that offers unique petroglyphs only a few miles from the freeway. The road to Sego Canyon starts at Thompson Springs and goes north. The road is an old, asphalt road, which quickly ends and a dirt road continues. It's not appropriate for motor homes, but most cars should make it fine. Shortly after entering... 更多
