Saturday, May 28th, a few members of the Hurricane Valley Chapter of the Sons of Utah Pioneers gathered at the Zion’s Bank parking lot, and headed out to visit the Little Black Mountain hieroglyph site. Why it is called Little Black Mountain is a mystery, because it is neither a mountain, or black. It is a fairly steep and impressive hill that juts above the ground in the area of Black mountain. Black Mountain is located to the south, and west of the area we went, and can be seen very well from the site we were at.
Our trek took less than 20 minutes to get to, but was well worth the time and effort to see. Along with the “red” mountain that is the main object of interest, there are amazing rock formations that surround it! We were able to see what we wanted to see, and return home within three hours of leaving. Although this was a short trek, it was amazing to think that we have such a site within such close proximity to our community. It was well worth the trip, and the companionship. Below are a few of the pictures we took at the site.
