These are some pictographs we saw on the side of the canyon wall. Explorers believe that the stairs in the picture to the left reprisent the trail that the Native Americans built. they also believed that the symbol in the picture in the right reprisented unity between the tribes that lived in the area.

DSCF0353.JPG This is the only know pictograph in the whole Wapatki National Monument but, judging buy its placement archiologists believe there are more below the sand. Sunset Crater DSCF0354.JPGDSCF0356.JPG These picture are at Sunset Crater. Despite its name, Sunset Crater is acually a volcano. Both of these pictures were taken on the trail along the base of the volcano. There was once a trail that lead around the rim of the volcano. The park managers closed it when it became litered with too much trash. DSCF0361.JPG Along the whole Grand Canyon Trip, Jacob and Cole searched for and explored many caves. This is one of them at Sunset Crater.
