The Little Black Mountain Petroglyph Site is just across the Arizona/Utah border a few miles south of St. George, Utah. Over an 8,000 year period several different groups of American Indians carved and pecked more than 500 images on the many boulders that are scattered around the cliffs near the southwest corner of the mountain. The area appears to have been used mostly for ceremonies and as a calendar site.
