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.

Arizona is known for its national and state parks, but it’s also home to some of the largest municipal parks in the world. This structure is located at one of them, and if you’ve visited to check out its thousands of Hohokam petroglyphs, hike its 70 miles of trails or enjoy a panoramic city view, you’ve probably passed by.
