Exploring the Moab Area with Jim

Moab Area Rock Art XII | Saturday & Sunday, September 17-18, 2011

This past weekend I met up with Jim from the Rock Art group on Flickr since he was spending a week or two in Moab. Of course we went out and visited some rock art sites that he had not been to before, and he even brought me to a few sites that I had missed before.

Jim takes a photo in the wrong direction as he stands next to the Lonesome Shaman.

I’ve visited this faint pictograph panel with figures that appear to be wearing antlers before, but don’t think I have ever posted a photo…so here you go…

Somehow I managed to miss this petroglyph a few times in the past when I visited the Supplication Panel…probably because I never tried to actually get up near the panel.

We also made a stop at the Bartlett Panel pictographs. This figure was probably very impressive before it weathered away.

One sheep with two heads. There’s a few unique sheep petroglyphs in the area.

We also made a stop by the Moab Mastodon.

Light from the setting sun reflects off of some fins in the Behind the Rocks wilderness.

A large anthropomorph that resembles a birdcage (or R2D2) and a couple of other unique figures.

I decided to stop and take this photo on the way home…I seem to drive this stretch of road almost weekly so I rarely stop for photos anymore.
