21 Goats

21 Goats is made up of a large panel of petroglyphs that are located in the wash down from Whitney Pockets.

The name comes from the fact that there are lots of goats in that panel, along with other symbols. My grandfather G. Fenton Whitney called this the Indian Writings.

We’ve GPS mapped some of the amazing sites you can visit from the ranch. We used Gaia (which is a $5/month app), but if you visit Gaia links to the right of the pictures you can download the GPS files and use them with any GPS app of your liking.
