Homolovi State Park, near Winslow, Arizona

Bear paw petroglyphs seem curious at a desert landmark By LAURIE KAVENAUGH

Homolovi has known human presence for some 11,000 years: Nomadic hunters stopped there early on, then the Hisat’sinom (Anasazi) civilization built villages and lived there until 1400. Within the Tsu’vo loop are about two dozen fading petroglyphs left behind by those who stopped at the Twin Buttes.
