About halfway between the small town of Meeteetse, Wyoming and Thermopolis is a small state park that’s got an extraordinary number of petroglyphs. These artistic figures range in age from nearly 10,000 years old, to after European settlers arrived in the region less than 200 years ago. In order to access the site, you either have to go during the season, which runs late May to September, or if you want to visit at another time, you actually need to get the key in the State Park headquarters which is located in Thermopolis. You also need to ask them for directions. I picked the town of Grass Creek Wyoming for the location for the story, as it is the closest reference point. But this site is about 5 miles off the main highway on a dirt road. Its not near anything, so pay attention to the directions you receive.
