Exploring Plateau Creek

Sunday, February 6, 2011

This afternoon my friend Jackson and I spent a few hours exploring the Plateau Creek area of the Grand Mesa. I wanted to check out a new rock art panel, and he was in search of some birds to photograph. Here’s a few photos I took as we explored the area.

This is the full petroglyph panel that we visited.

After checking out the petroglyphs, we were visited by some bighorn sheep high above us.

I believe this was a Robin.

This guy just stared at us from behind the fence along the road.

I think Jackson said this was a Red-Tailed Hawk.
