Legend Rock, part 2

The following is quoted from the Wyoming State Parks brochure:
"Most of the petroglyphs at Legend Rock are classified as the 'Dinwoody' tradition. Dinwoody petroglyphs are located only in the Big Horn and Wind River Basins west of the Big Horn River. Dinwoody petroglyphs are always pecked and are often of large humanlike figures with headdresses, an unusual amount of toes or fingers, upside down figures, and/or a pattern of interior lines in the torso."

This first picture below provides a perspective of the cliff on which the rock art was made. Note the road on the right.

Below is an upward look at the cliff.
