The next morning, I left Lander, Wyoming through the Wind River Canyon.

Cottonwood Creek as it flows by Legend Rock State Petroglyph Site. This is northwest of Thermopolis, Wyoming.

In the distance where the creek and the dirt road come closest to the ridge is where the petroglyphs are located.

The sign at the entrance.
This 30 acre park is very seldom visited by the general public.

Some flowers in the area.

This appeared to be a grinding hole, but it might have been natural.

Some of the interesting strata...

Bird houses...

More of one of the ridges...

Some of the ancient, and more modern glyphs....

More glyphs...

A four legged, and a two legged...

An animal whose head is now missing...

I really liked this bird figure...

This is an interesting design...

There were lots of drawings in this area...

The ridge as seen from the creek...

I called this the hammerhead...

The bullseye being...

More animals...

More of the ridge...

This is the last picture from Legend Rock.
It is looking southwest along the sandstone cliffs.

Some of the land forms along Cottonwood Creek on Sand Draw Road (Road 18) northwest of Thermopolis, Wyoming.
