The Fremont indians were quite the graffiti artists. You can see dots for counting, you can see images from a hunt. There were lots of people and animals.
Sadly, the images in Nine Mile Canyon are not well protected. They are out there in the open and not protected by elements at all. Even more injurious, humans have come along and added their own “graffiti” to the authentic ancient ones, not to mention countless numbers of visitor signature graffiti thrown into the mix. While I was able to distinguish between the new and the old, it was pitiful that there hasn’t been more effort to keep these artifacts better preserved.
They are scattered along the windy road. You have to have a pretty good eye to catch some of them. The vast majority of them are not marked, and I am sure that a day of exploring in the more remote areas away from the road would yield even more, uncommon pieces.
We did not even make it to the Cottonwood panel to see the great hunt.
If you like art from the past, this canyon is the place for you.
