Dinosaur National Monument Petroglyphs

The Dinosaur National Monument petroglyphs are another reason to visit this national monument.  

Created by the Fremont people, the Dinosaur National Monument petroglyphs are about 1000 years old. They are representative of the “classic Vernal style” that is characterized by the trapezoidal bodies and elaborate jewelry and headgear.
