Supplication
The incredible Supplication Panel of petroglyphs near Moab.

This morning we headed over to the Moab area so I could bring Diane to a few rock arts sites that she had never been to and that I have also wanted to see again. It’s always nice to revisit some old friends! There really not much else to say about the day, so here are a few photos!

I always enjoy seeing the Supplication Panel.

It was a little cold out in the morning, but still a nice day to be outside in the desert.

Very unusual petroglyphs…

Unusual Petroglyphs

A Bird in the Hand is better than a Snake-in-the-Mouth. That’s how that saying goes…right?

We didn’t only visit rock art on this day trip, we also stopped at the Gemini Bridges since I couldn’t remember the last time I was here.

A nice over over one of the bridges and Bull Canyon to the La Sal Mountains on the horizon.

I’ve always liked this petroglyph of a sheep.

A very interesting panel that’s hard to see and photograph.

    HI Randy! Your travels among the many hysterical areas in the SW are amazing. You are visiting places I’ve longed to see. Thank you for being so generous with your photographs and commentary, especially the ones where challenging hikes are not feasible for seniors like us. We are RVing to the SW In May with my camera and sketchbook at the ready! This winter I’ve researched and mapped out destinations using internet resources, but especially Google Earth and its Street VIew to get the lay of the land at locations we hope to visit. Fascinating, and keeps me out of trouble for hours. So looking forward to this trip. We’re traveling from Washington State to California via Highway 101 to visit family along the way, then east on 40 to AZ briefly visiting friends and my beloved Sedona, then proceed on 40 to the Petrofied Forest. Then we head north to Canyon de Chelly, Mesa Verte, Canyonlands, Moab country, Arches, Capitol Reef, Boulder area, Bryce, and a few other destinations as we head north to home. I will warch for your updates and adventures in rock art country! Thanks for sharing them!
