Notch panel - Coyote Buttes. I don't have that many picture of rock art and most are so-so, but I like this one the best. I love the dude with the ear rings and the two headed snake on the top-left! We stumbled upon this not knowing it was there making it even funner to find!
that crazy maze has really grabbed my attention.

I recently came across a similar site which was at the edge of a ledge wall & had a 6 inch layer of ash underneath which was visible where the wall was eroding away (clay wall).
there were pottery pieces in situ of as many types as in your shot spread over an area of about 10 square feet.
it also included this awesome knuckle bone.

when describing it to a local who is very knowledgeable, i was told that it was most likely originally the bottom of a kiva.
my own theory is that it was a pottery manufacturing site's midden pile.

here is a reference shot and a couple choice shots of the pottery:

Very cool pictures. The site we came across is on the mesa top. There are no cliffs close by. We also found 4 very worn manos, a lot of flint, some charcoal, and what appeared to be a foot long section if a burned beam. I think that it is most likely the midden of a pithouse that is no longer visible from the surface. There are a bunch more pictures of the site on my Flickr photostream.
