If you can read the plaque on this Northern Arizona building, this month’s Where Is This? isn’t going to be much of a challenge. If you don’t have superhuman eyesight, we’ll tell you that the building dates to the 1870s and is named after one of its managers. And it’s part of a complex that owes its existence to the water source located there.

This spiral is one of dozens of petroglyphs at a site in Arizona’s Sonoran Desert. It’s been federally protected since the 1960s, but the petroglyphs have been there for hundreds of years. If you visit, make plenty of photos, but don’t touch — oils from your hands can damage the rock art.
