Footsteps of Ancients at Rock Art Canyon Ranch- Guests: Brantley & Tori Baird

One of the world’s largest rock art collections, dating from 5,000 BC to 1400 AD, can be toured on a private cattle ranch near Winslow Arizona. over 3,000 petroglyphs grace the walls of a small, easily accessible two-mile long canyon that runs through Rock Art Canyon Ranch, the 5,000 acre home of rancher Brantley Baird. It’s long been a sacred site, where hunting and gathering groups and semi-nomadic farmers left their mark, with hogans and sweat lodge still used by local tribes. Brantley and grandaughter Tori also offer access to archeologists and to the public of on-site tours of the canyon’s rock art, the pots and artifacts he found on the land, and pioneer relics, as well as to us with their photos and stories.
