Overwrite

I’ve been looking for this rock art panel for over a year and finally managed to find it over the Thanksgiving weekend. It took me three separate trips to find it, so I guess the third time’s the charm! I find it interesting that the petroglyph on the right is placed right over a larger pictograph which makes it really stand out. The texture on the ceiling of this overhang is just amazing, and I managed to visit this site at the right time of the day since there was some nice reflected light bouncing around.

Ute Boulder Sunrise

Ute Boulder Sunrise

There was a beautiful sunrise a few weekends ago as I was on my way to hike and search for some new rock art and ruins in Southern Utah. I just happened to be near this large boulder with Ute petroglyphs at the time and thought it might make a nice image. As the early morning sunlight bounced off the clouds above everything was bathed in a red glow for a few minutes. The storm clouds in the background were nice, too.

Happy Thanksgiving! I went on a local hike this morning in search of this petroglyph and decided to post this photo since I’m sure many of you feel this way right now after your large Thanksgiving dinner.

Buffalo Panel

Buffalo Panel

While searching for rock art in Montezuma Canyon last year I came across this nice panel of petroglyphs depicting a group of buffalo and elk. Following the animals are a few riders on horseback that appear to be pecked in a Ute style similar to the Wolfe Panel in Arches National Park.

There are plenty of unique petroglyphs found within Nine Mile Canyon, and this one depicting a pregnant buffalo is certainly among them.
