Colorado River Gorge Petroglyphs & More…

Moab Area Rock Art I
Saturday, January 22, 2011

Since I am planning on making a number of trips to the Moab area in search of rock art this year, I’ve decided to make it easy on myself with the naming convention for these trip reports. Here’s the first of this years ‘Moab Area Rock Art’ series.

On Saturday, Amanda and I headed down to Moab to search out some new petroglyphs along the Colorado River, plus to revisit some that we’ve been to many times before. It always seems that no matter how many times I visit these areas, I always find something new. Here’s some photos of just some of the petroglyphs we found throughout the day.

After a productive day of searching out rock art, we grabbed some dinner in town and headed to Arches to watch the sunset on Balanced Rock.
