This is a great experience. This is far off of pavement and a decent hike but very doable. Walked where ancient civilizations walked and we created our own stories of how they must have lived.

When you take the trouble to see this panel, you will never forget it. Very few people do, so you are usually by yourself at the panel. It is so stunning to see in person, not just in pictures. Very well worth the day to see. You will need to take a 4WD vehicle just to be sure.

Also, before you've started out on this adventure, you better know... More

A 6.5 mile round trip starts with a canyon wall descent = .9 mi and 600 feet, followed by a beautiful walk up a winding canyon. Three galleries of pictographs of varying types and ages. The Great Gallery is the final stop at 3.2 miles. Amazing figures approx 3000-5000 years old. We went in October when the weather was perfect... More
