Willard UT Petroglyphs

Anyone know anything about the petroglyphs near Willard UT. I'm told they are Freemont, and that a long time ago, some USU professors studied them. I'd like to know more about what they learned, but don't know how to find out.

I went for a hike last year, and was able to find a lot of them, including some in a remote spot that were probably unknown before. I'll post some of my pictures soon. I do have some GPS coordinates, but I don't want to give them out publicly.

This place has a bunch of pictures too.

Two comments about these picture glyphs -

The natives here didn't have a Christian religion, so the red-paint man with horns would possible be a medicine man. & not a devil.

The sigzag markings are more representative of lighting or mountains, and not a snake, which could possibly be a wavy line.

My comments were meant to be exploratory & not a final account? Regards
