Utah Rock Art Research Association, (URARA) has replaced it’s monthly on the ground field trips during this COVID-19 pandemic, with a series of presentations on Utah and surrounding area rock art that you can now view on YouTube. Presentations from the “Who, What, When, and How, of rock art in Utah – to “Ute, Paiute, and Navajo rock art” and more. Maybe a brief look at Shoshone rock art if we are feeling adventurous.  These presentations are a big hit with URARA members and rock art enthusiasts, and are now available to you on YouTube.  Subscribe to the YouTube channel and take advantage of this opportunity to see and enjoy the fabulous rock art left behind by the native peoples without traversing these areas in adverse conditions, or hiking miles into remote places.
