Climbing Hands

Climbing Hands

A pair of white hands reach for the sky within the Canyon Pintado National Historic District in Western Colorado. These are located at the White Hands Site (good name, eh?) which is the first site you will come across when traveling from the south. There are some other pictographs scattered around this site as well.

Carrot Men Panel

Carrot Men Panel

Is it Barrier Canyon Style? Is it Fremont? Is is some transitional period in between? I’m not quite sure, but the Carrot Men Panel is very unique! The heads on some of these figures remind me of the pictographs found in Black Dragon Canyon and even Temple Mountain Wash. This is a great site to visit, except when the biting gnats are out in full force like they were today!
