Welcome to Native American Images Petroglyphs.  Here we invite you to tour amid the rocks with us in search of ancient messages.  We don't intend to interpret the messages here.  Just to show you what it is like to discover the rock art that covers the Southwestern United States, and many other areas of North America as well.

Serious students of rock art should read Alex Patterson's book A Field Guide to Rock Art Symbols of the Greater Southwest.

Use your mouse to search the two large images below.  You can zoom in to areas that we found to be the most interesting.  You will find five "hot spots" on each of the images.  Enjoy the hunt.  

You also are invited to look at the portfolio by Gene Knitter of petroglyphs found near Lynx Lake, Arizona and Sedona, Arizona.
