There are no shortage of opportunities to see petroglyphs in Arizona. Perhaps the most remarkable petroglyph site in the entire state is Deer Valley Petroglyph Preserve, located in the Deer Valley area of Phoenix. Managed by ASU, the site boasts over 1,500 rock drawings created anywhere between 500 and 5,000 years ago. It’s such an incredible way to learn about the history of the area!
