The Tempi' po' op trail (pronounced: tumpee poo oop), aka Anasazi Trail, is located in the Santa Clara River Preserve near St. George, Utah. In the Southern Paiute language Tempi'po'op means 'rock writing' and that is something that there is a lot of on the boulders along the rim of the cliffs overlooking the Anasazi Valley. On the knob of a hill on the way up to the petroglyphs the trail passes close by a prehistoric Ancestral Puebloan farmstead or pueblo.
