Moab Area Rock Art IV | Monday, February 21, 2011
Since I had Presidents Day off from work and the weather was going to be nice, Jackson and I headed to the Moab area in search of some more rock art and to just do some hiking and exploring. We couldn’t have asked for a better day in February, and we managed to find quite a bit of rock art.
First up was a visit to the Secret Grotto. I wonder what’s down in that crack?
Would you look at that! There’s rock art hidden down here!

Here’s a few more pictographs we found after leaving the Secret Grotto.
This Barrier Canyon Style pictograph panel was probably my favorite find of the day.
It was a bit tough to get a good shot of it, though…
We also found a few faded sheep petroglyphs nearby.
Next we headed over to Secret Spire to do a little more hiking and exploring.
Apparently, someone thought there was something worth searching for in this alcove at some point…
We even managed to find a few more petroglyphs on our way back into town before we drove home.
It was a great way to spend Presidents Day!
