Ancient Petroglyphs in the Valley of Fire
The Navajo called them Anaasási, meaning ‘Ancestral Enemies’.
Fortunately, the Anasazi aren’t our enemies. They lived in the Valley of Fire between 350 B.C. and 1150 A.D., hunting and gathering food.
Evidence of Anasazi culture still remains in the Valley of Fire. Tours draw many visitors to the Valley, where they can see the images left behind on the rocks
These drawings are called Petroglyphs.
So what drawings are on these petroglyphs? The drawings are less detailed than Egyptian hieroglyphs, but you can still make out images of people, animals, and other structures. In some cases, they appear to tell a story.
Aside from the petroglyphs, The Anasazi have no written record, so we don’t know the full meaning of their stories.
The Best Way to Experience The Valley of Fire
The best way to see the petroglyphs is to visit in spring or autumn, during the morning or evening, bring lots of water, and know somebody who can find them.
