  • Description 

    Another great find by Mike Baker. The Prayer Stick is a really nice looking leaning pillar. It has some fairly unique petroglyphs at the base of the pillar. The whole area gives you the feel that many Indians have been there before you.

    Getting There 

    When sticking with the overall directions of this page, you will want to drive 2.7 miles and park in a field on the right just past a wash. The hike up to the pillar follows a wash and then some talus, and takes around 20-30 minutes.
