Art for the Ages
Photograph by Frans Lanting

Among the thousands of rock art sites on the Colorado Plateau, the famous "rainbow panel" above Rochester Creek in Utah's San Rafael Swell is in a world of its own. Though the human-like figures are similar to those in Horseshoe Canyon, they are joined by fierce, supernatural animals and a copulation scene unlike any others found in Utah. The age and artists remain unknown.
