The Flying Carpet Panel is located less than 5 miles up Salt Creek in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park between Moab and Monticello, Utah. The panel gets its name from a rectangular shaped Barrier Canyon Style pictograph image that has a patterned body with fringes along its lower edge. Other, equally fine, images of the same BCS type accompany the panels namesake on the same cliff face.
