Buckhorn Wash Pictographs

Buckhorn Wash isĀ an outstanding example of artistically beautiful pictographs. Pictographs are painted on the rock using various methods, probably fingers, brushes made form animal fur, or grasses. The pigment was hematite, and though well over 2,000 years old, the pigment remains. The road to the pictograph area is the same one accessing the Wedge Overlook.

This trip can be made in about an hour with good tires. Google calculates the trip based upon dirt roads. These are excellent dirt roads, well maintained. You can see the Wedge and the Buckhorn Wash in one trip. But you can plan on spending a while at each destination!
