Although rock carvings are found scattered along the cliffs, there are several large Ancestral Pueblo petroglyph panels nearby. A panel can be seen on your right just up the trail that contains carvings of arrows that are not of Ancestral Pueblo origin. For a time Spanish sheepherders kept their stock in small pens built under rock outcroppings here at Tsankawi. These historic additions probably date from Spanish-Colonial times (late 1800 – early 1900). Please do not add to these important markings.
