Parowan Gap Petroglyphs
The petroglyphs at Parowan Gap are a culmination of several cultural groups and display many stories and important information of the Native cultures. Many of the designs are unrecognizable and may represent ideas or concepts, rather than actual events. These petroglyphs are on the National Register of Historic Places and are deeply treasured by the Local Native Americans. In addition to the petroglyphs, dinosaur tracks can be found in the area. Parowan Gap is located just north of Cedar City.
