Dinwoody Petroglyphs at Legend Rock

The "Dinwoody" tradition petroglyphs are always pecked. Sometimes the entire shape is pecked, but other times a shape may be filled with interior lines or specks, as in this image.

Dinwoody petroglyphs are often humanlike figures with headdresses and an unusual amount of fingers, toes or limbs. Notice the interior lines in the torso of the figure below - a distinctive characteristic of Dinwoody type petroglyphs.
A final shot of the landscape before we had to get down the road. The short days of November meant we had to drive in the dark most of the way home.
