St. Victor Petroglyphs

On our recent visit to the Willow Bunch, Saskatchewan area, my wife and I made a trip to the petroglyphs of St. Victor, which are about 15 km west of the town and just south of the hamlet of St. Victor.

It is an ancient aboriginal site, with some claiming spiritual significance. The following signage is a fairly comprehensive description of the site. We had been advised that the images would be most visible in early morning or last light, but unfortunately the B.C. wildfire smoke interfered. The slideshow gives some perspective of the site and the beautiful coulees surrounding. I hope you will find it as interesting as we did.


The petroglyphs have been declared an historical site by the province, and efforts have been made to preserve them for future generations. Sadly, some people just can’t seem to leave things like this alone, and have done far more to cause deterioration than time itself. Apparently there has been human activity at the base of the sandstone cliff, causing accelerated undermining and slumping of the sandstone bearing the petroglyphs.

Please note that the slideshow may take a few moments to load on your device. Thanks for looking!
