We don't know the actual name of this arch.
The rock is covered with petroglyphs.
About one mile northeast lies a natural pass
between two low buttes, which prehistorically,
the Aborigines may have used as a site of
ambushing migratory deer herds. Three
petroglyph panels are located in the pass
concerted cooperative efforts of several families
were necessary for successful trapping, killing,
and processing the deer.
Petroglyphs suggest magical or ritual connection
with hunting activities. They were added seasonally
by the group's religious leader, or Shaman, as
omens to insure a successful hunt.
