Located about 25 miles southwest of Monticello, Utah, Newspaper Rock is a remarkable petroglyph site. This panel etched in sandstone records a couple of thousand years of early human activity.
No one really knows the true meaning of the figures on the rock. Do the figures represent storytelling, doodling, hunting magic, clan symbols or ancient graffiti? Without a true understanding of the petroglyphs, much is left for individual interpretation and imagination. In Navajo, the rock is called “Tse’ Hane’” –Rock that tells a story.
I am just happy to be there, to witness such history, in natural environment, with or without understanding the true meaning behind the figures. They seemed intriguing to me.
