"Bud" Leland H. Sanders takes us on a trip to one of the biggest petroglyph sites in Southern Arizona. His ability to write up these trips is just outstanding. There is a lot of history included and further down in the PDF provided by Bud there is a comprehensive showing of photographs of all the petroglyphs to be found here. Meet Bud Sanders----

Getting there: Take Interstate 8 east from Yuma for about 75 miles to the Spot Road Exit. Get on the north frontage road and head east for 1 mile to Avenue 76SE, then go north on 76SE on the dirt road for about 7 miles. Park in front of the ridge of rocks. This road is not maintained! See the map for more detail.
This petroglyph site is open to the public and is worth the travel time to see it. Thanks Bud for sharing this!
There is another smaller petroglyph site on the way to this site. Exit 37 off of I-8 then north to the north side of Antelope Hill Write up here
