Picture Canyon Pictographs

Picture Canyon, a well-named canyon in the southern Sheep Range (and part of the Desert Wildlife Refuge), has been rediscovered by hikers in recent years as they searched for missing long-distance hiker Kenny Veach. He disappeared in 2014 while searching for a cave he discovered on a previous hike. His cell phone was found at a small mining prospect in Joe May Canyon, which is connected to Picture Canyon by a loop trail.

Hidden along the towering limestone canyon walls are an interesting array of faded pictographs and petroglyphs. Bighorn sheep, deer, figures, sunbursts, spirals, war shields, hand prints, and even a checkerboard!
