These five photographs were taken at 14RU12 and 14RU13, which are jointly called the Burnt City site. The glyphs at 14RU12 appear on a large boulder and include six pointed stars, bear tracks, a cervid figure, bison, an anthropomorphic face, a four-legged bird-like figure and incised lines. The glyphs at 14RU13, located on a bluff, include human figures, bird tracks, six pointed stars, a possible horse head, anthropomorphic figures, phallic glyphs, and other hard to interpret figures. Both sites are heavily weathered and have been defaced by visitors. Most of the pictures were taken in 1956 and 1957, except the photograph showing a recording team, which was taken in 1963.

Date: 1956-1963
