They could be other inscriptions or simply knife marks but you probably won't find anything convincing.
Here's another case that has been discussed before (probably fell victim to autoprune)

It includes several chapters about rock art in Colorado and speculates that a lot of it is ogham script. The same book includes supposed ogham carving from elsewhere in the US. I have to say I'm not really convinced, but there is certainly food for thought in this book.
If you can find a copy it might help you track down the carvings. Locations in Colorado that are mentioned include - Sun Temple mentioned by McGlone and Leonard in "Ancient Celtic America, 1986 - Hidden Spring- Crack Cave - Little Hidden Cave, Hayes Canyon - Anubis Caves.

The - i fear to say it - german wikipedia mentions DNS evidence from 2006 that proved no Welsh DNS in the Mandan, but doesn't give a source. Do You know anything about that.
It is my hope that the history of the Mandan people can be respected for what it is, I don’t imagine they appreciate their oral history being relegated to second class by a European myth. There have been enough prejudicial theories against Native history: from the foreign builders of Cahokia to Egyptian influence in Maya writing.
