Interesting design at Paxtons Shearing Corral

Paxtons Shearing Corral is probably my favorite of the rock art sites I have visited near Kanosh. The panel faces east and has exquisite lighting in the morning. Like other sites in the area, the rock art consists of petroglyphs on black basalt boulders. The style is likely Fremont with a mix of more faint archaic glyphs. It is a large area, with seemingly endless art to see.

Historic Note: The area west of present day interstate I-15 was originally heavily used for sheep ranching. Early settles had sheep as the primary industry. Demand for sheep dwindled, and as time has gone on, cattle have become the more dominate industry in the area. This site sits just north of an old concrete pad and fence. Likely the site of Paxton’s Sheep Shearing Corral.
