The Faris Cave Petroglyph site in Ellsworth County was named for the three historic period caves that were dug into the sandstone bluff. The nearby sandstone face is thickly covered with modern graffiti, but also contains a few glyphs from earlier times. The glyphs include a sun, bow and arrow glyphs, and a bison or quadruped. These shots were taken in 1979.

Date: 1979
