On Saturday I was hoping to spend around half the day with Amanda exploring the area around Rangely, Colorado. We were planning on revisiting a few rock art sites and maybe trying to find a few new ones, too. Unfortunately, we ended up cutting the trip short because the biting gnats were just unbearable. Once we got out of the Jeep we would have a few minutes (if we were lucky) until they found us and swarmed around us. We were wearing bug spray, but it didn’t help at all. After our first stop at the Carrot Men Panel, Amanda decided to stay in the Jeep for the rest of our stops, and I don’t blame her. If I kept moving, the bugs weren’t too bad, but the second I stopped to take a photo, it was all over! After being chased by swarms of gnats at each stop we made, I decided to call it a day early and come back another time. I did get a few photos, though!
