This is a neat site inside of the Valley of Fire State Park. It is my favorite petroglyph spot in the park. The story of how the tank (a tinaja) was named is interesting although I’m not sure how accurate it is. I won’t recount it here. The petroglyphs themselves are probably Virgin River Anasazi (Ancestral Puebloan).
