Fort Pearce

We spent an easy day in the St. George area checking out a few new to us sites.  The first stop was at Fort Pearce. 
The fort is in ruins now, but it used to be a stopping spot for settlers coming from the Arizona Strip to St. George. 
We wandered around it and through the ruins.   Sparse accomodations!  It's not a place that travelers would want to spend an extended period of time at- especially being so close to St. George.  
We then wandered down the Fort Pearce Wash to look for petroglyphs.  There are several boulders and overhangs with petroglyphs in the wash. 
There are also numerous "cowboy glyphs" written in axle grease under the overhangs.  One of my favorite was this one of a bearded Mormon.
