The Lower Pecos River
Louis F. Aulbach and Jack Richardson
The Lewis Canyon site.
New petroglyphs have been uncovered in digs organized by the Rock Art Foundation.
In addition, a tinaja or water hole was unearthed in the latest dig on September
27-29, 2002. The tinaja makes this site similar to other petroglyph sites
in Texas which also were located in the vicinty of a water hole. Many of the
new petroglyphs are scenes of hunting and images of the atlatl are used frequently
in conjunction with images denoting animals common to the area, namely, deer,
bear, turkey, fish and lizards.
