I spent the long weekend in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park hiking and searching for more rock art. I’ve been out looking for this pictograph panel a few times before without any success. This time I finally managed to find it! I really like the trapezoidal-shaped anthropomorph found here.

White Dot Panel

White Dot Panel

Earlier this month I spent some time searching The Needles and Indian Creek for ruins and rock art. As I searched along Indian Creek, I found this nice panel of white pictographs. Most of it is comprised of white dots arranged in lines that remind me of the panel near Peekaboo Spring in Salt Creek Canyon. There are also a few different kinds of handprints found here.

Here’s a closer look at some of the figures in the Horseshoe Gallery found within Horseshoe Canyon in Canyonlands National Park. The dog-like figure on the left is very interesting with toes painted on each foot. There are also plenty of handprint ‘designs’ found among the larger figures, too. I’m really hoping to make it back to Horseshoe Canyon in October to visit the sites found there again.

I spent Memorial Day weekend exploring some new canyons of Cedar Mesa in search of ruins and rock art. One of those canyons was Fish Creek Canyon where I found this well-preserved set of reverse-handprints just above a large ruin. It was a great weekend of hiking and exploring!
