"The Serpentine Room"

Located in a secluded alcove, on the Cedar Mesa Plateau, is a little granary built by the Anasazi people between 900 and 1100 AD. On the rock surface above this dwelling is the faint remnant of what was at one time a massive 12-15 foot pictograph rock art panel.

Sadly, the reality of time and mother nature has taken it's toll on this amazing location and only a very small area of this once mighty panel still remains. Interestingly, what does remain is perfectly aligned above the entrance to this ancient home and depicts a curdled up snake, and the trail it created.
