What an awesome rock art site!
Rock art is not uncommon in Death Valley National Park,especially petroglyphs, but finding a site with such vividly colored pictographs was a surprise, indeed!

Death Valley Sheep

Another Ibex-like horned sheep from Death Valley National Park.

Maybe these are Ibex. There is an Ibex Dunes in the southern part of the park, after all. :-)

Full shot of Perfect Panel. The site gets its name due to the fact that there isn't one mark on it. It's perfect!
