Newspaper Rock is a 200 square foot rock surface in San Juan County, Utah, that is covered by hundreds of ancient Indian petroglyphs — rock art chiseled and pecked into stone — that records nearly 2,000 years of human activity in the area, like a newspaper. Although they are typical of many sites throughout the U.S., these petroglyphs are one of the largest, best preserved and easily accessed groups in the Southwest. The petroglyphs feature a mixture of human, animal, material and abstract forms representing the Fremont, Anasazi, Navajo and Anglo cultures. Newspaper Rock is located right next to Utah Route 211 about 45 km northwest of Monticello and 85 km south of Moab. The petroglyphs can be found on the vertical Wingate sandstone cliffs on the upper end of Indian Creek Canyon
