Escalante Canyon Petroglyphs

Sunday, January 9, 2011

On Sunday, Amanda and I took a short trip to Escalante Canyon near Delta to locate some new petroglyphs and to revisit some ones I’ve been to before. The new panels we found were along the Gunnison River.

Further in the canyon we stopped by the well-known Ute Petroglyph Panel. Unfortunately, some idiot has chalked all of the petroglyphs since I was here last in 2009.

The sign does a lot of good…

Amanda took this photo of a bighorn sheep on our way out of the canyon.

It was a good way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon.
