Picture CanyonNatural and Cultural Preserve Flagstaff, AZ

We have volunteered for over a decade to protect Picture Canyon in Flagstaff, AZ. Picture Canyon is the type site for Northern Sinauga rock art. We mapped and photographed127 petroglyph panels in support of a successful National Register nomination. We developed a GIS database, large format map, and an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) file with an interactive maps and panel photographs. For more information about the effort to preserve Picture Canyon, see the Picture Canyon Working Group website. Google map :https://goo.gl/maps/5M9NW
