One day we decided to hike down to the River Petroglyph Panel just west of Bluff, UT. I had been there before, a long time ago, so I "led."
The trail goes down an old wagon road from 100 years ago to the San Juan River. Can you believe this was a wagon road???
But when we got down into the wash, the trail was very overgrown. I didn't remember it being that way - maybe because it was 5 years ago, or maybe because it was spring, not fall. Anyway, some of the group (including me) was wondering if I knew what I was doing...
But I knew the panel was along the river, so as long as we were going down, I didn't think we were too far off. When we got down closer to the river, there were some ruins.
And then - whoopee! I found them!
Okay, here's my caption --- "I wish I could get this guy out of my head!!!"
There were several panels along the river, again some older and some newer.
We found a big tree to have lunch under. That's me in the lower right corner, sitting next to Arlien, a WIN friend I first met in 1996 in Virginia when I was hanging out with the Loners on Wheels.
The San Juan River is a popular rafting spot. It seems to be one of the few waterways we've seen this summer that actually has plenty of water.
All too soon, it was time to climb back out of the canyon.
It's always nice to see those kayaks again - useful in parking lots too!
