Images of bighorn sheep chipped into a sandstone boulder at Wolfe Ranch provide a look at the lifestyle of native tribes who lived here before the arrival of European settlers. These etched images were made using primitive tools, depicting equestrians, dogs, and a variety of figures engaged in hunting scenes.
