|The boys discussing the meaning behind those scribbles on that huge rock ahead|
A couple of months ago our friend Paul told us about these fantastic petroglyphs nearby (note: we use that term "nearby" in a very relative matter of speaking... considering that the nearest Target is 3 hours roundtrip... so in this instance, nearby means about 45 miles east of Kanab). The panel would be only a short hike and totally kid-doable. Today was our third attempt to find the rock art. And YES! WE FOUND THEM!! WOW!

The route was actually very easy, in hind sight. But you have to know where to go and what to look for (something we were a little sketchy on). We first had to walk through a ginormous field of sage brush. It's been raining in the desert for nearly a month now (at least it feels that way!!) and so if you can imagine a wonderfully green, fragrant landscape that stretches on as far as the eye can see... you can get a glimpse at what we waded through.
