My wife and I made a first trip to the Eagletails with a couple "guides". We walked the Ben Avery trail around Courthouse Butte but then mainly went cross country through the nice open desert toward Indian Springs.

We started finding petroglyphs as we got nearer the Springs and when we got to that area we toured the cliffbands looking at thousands of petroglyphs. These are mainly of the archaic style meaning they are simple geometric patterns probably a couple thousands years old. The bedrock in the creek bottom here had many mortar holes left by these people.

We walked a ways further down the wash and noticed more glyphs that looked newer, probably from later inhabitants.

We saw four small deer go over the hill on the way back - the wildlife management and watering is working here. Nice area, the drive in was no trouble for my Subaru.
