Tom’s Experience visiting the Fruita Petroglyphs:

The Fruita Petroglyphs are some very interesting petroglyphs just off of highway 24 in Capitol Reef National Park near the Fruita Schoolhouse. There is a small wooden bridge that leads you from the parking lot to the base of the steep red cliffs which contain numerous petroglyphs.
