Little Cottonwood Canyon Pictographs

Little Cottonwood Canyon
Pictographs

Wasatch Mountains

          Not far up Little Cottonwood Canyon, just off the trail, Fremont Indians lived in a rock-slide cave about 1,000 years ago, where they drew a pictograph with the mineral red oquirrh. Native American rock art is extremely rare in the Salt Lake Valley. Considering the extreme and wet environment of the canyon this is a beautiful and well preserved pictograph.

          The pictograph consists of a human figure with horns that appears to be holding bow, and off to the side is a quadruped, with what appears to be antlers.
