Newspaper Rock, which is one of the largest and best-known petroglyph panels in Utah, is located about 12 miles west of U.S. Highway 191 between Monticello and Moab, on the paved road that leads to the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. Deep in a red rock canyon, near a stream lined with towering cottonwoods turned yellow with autumn, the panel contains hundreds of figures and shapes believed to be carved over the past 1,500 to 2,000 years. Across from the sites is a small campground with no water. According to the interpretive sign near the panel, the likely artists were prehistoric people of the Archaic, Basketmaker, Fremont or Pueblo cultures. More recently, Navajo, Ute and Anglos added to the spectacle. In the Navajo language, which I think sounds like Japanese (if you get into the area make sure to tune into AM 660, KTNN, from Window Rock, Ariz., which broadcasts much of its programming in Navajo) the rock is called Tse' Hane, or 'rock that tells a story'.
