Evidence Of The Past Along Utah 279

Besides the trail to Corona Arch, there are several other points of interest along Utah Route 279 south of Moab, the result of activity by earlier people and by now-extinct animal species.  The two light-colored three-pointed footprints in the large slab of rock are from a dinosaur.

On one side of Route 279 is a panel of petroglyphs.  Road signs call them "Indian Writing".

On the other side are the Colorado River and more rock formations.

More petroglyphs appear on two adjacent panels of rock.
