Hieroglyph Rock

This is a photo of one of many hieroglyphs found in an area of Wyoming called Castle Gardens. This are is not only fascinating because of the unique geology, but also because it contains some of the best examples of ancient hieroglyphs found in Wyoming. The hieroglyphs are estimated to date back to 1000 - 1200 A.D.
