Courthouse Wash

Archaic Indians painted long, tapered figures, known as Barrier Canyon
style rock art, on these cliffs above the Colorado river near Moab, Utah.
In 1980 vandals made an effort to destroy this panel by scrubbing it with stiff brushes and a cleaning abrasive. The NPS attempted to repair some damage, but no attempt was made to restore the panel to its former state.
