Just A Few Minutes



These Hohokam petroglyphs, quite typical for those found in the Phoenix area, are located on a low flat knoll off the northeast shoulder of Lookout Mountain. We stumbled across them while hiking Friday. I suspect that astronomical alignments are indicated here. I'll have to go back there this summer to check it out.

A line drawn from the circle figure through the sun glyph might indicate solstice sunset; it seems to point in that direction generally. Of course these markings could also be just decorative.
