I was tipped off on this location from a friend and fellow rock art enthusiast that had previously visited the site. This is one of the more intriguing locations that I’ve had the opportunity to visit. Located in a wash near the Wonderland Ranch ruins, this giant granite boulder is hollow underneath. To view the pictographs you have to crawl through a hole, and once you are under the boulder there is enough room for a six-foot tall person to stand straight up.
The designs that are present are simple, yet interesting. Present are number of “ticks”, which are believed by some to represent a calendar, or counting system. On the top, middle a pictograph of the sun is present. I speculate that the position of the sun pictograph indicates “high noon”. All of the designs that are present are made using a red pigment. One petroglyph is also present.
A blackened mortar hole is located above the entrance, likely used as a fire starting tool by the one time inhabitant.
