Pictographs up Centerville Canyon

We took a small hike to some pictographs along Parrish Creek. There was a small waterfall along the trail.

As we approached the site, we saw a Forest Service marker alerting that the rock art was near. Please do as the sign says and don't touch or deface the rock art!

The pictographs were under this ledge.
The big panel.
Several of the smaller figures were in better condition. This one has a man and either a dog or a wolf.
We think this one looks like the sun.

Another one.
This one was my favorite. I think it looks like a donkey.
