The Rochester Rock Art Panel consists of a large number of petroglyphs of various ages. Some are prehistoric, probably of Fremont culture origin. Others are probably modern, depicting horses, for example. And some are arguably of very recent origin, most likely the work of white explorers, settlers, and/or tourists. There is a great deal of graffiti near the main panel that is obviously of fairly recent origin. The majority of the panel is covered with a dark desert varnish which contrasts nicely with the light sandstone that is exposed when the petroglyphs are pecked into the surface. There are several sections of very light stone in the center of the panel where it appears some of original stone was removed, probably by collectors were after the figures inscribed there.
