Fate Bell Shelter in Seminole Canyon is one of the largest rockshelters in the Lower Pecos. It was partially excavated by A.T. Jackson in 1932 and briefly tested by Mark Parsons in 1963. In between and afterward, much of the cave was churned up by looters. The walls of the shelter are covered with hundreds of pictographs. Today this shelter is protected within Seminole Canyon State Park. It can be visited on regular tours led by the Park Rangers. Photo courtesy of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
