Lion's Mouth Pictographs

Chillin' under some Sweeeeet pictographs
Wow! What a Sunday! I heard about some really awesome rock art just outside Cedar City and since it was the most gorgeous day EVER and I knew that the fall colors would be pretty rad up on the mountain, we headed north.

Fiery aspens in lava rocks. Ugh. Too beautiful!!

FALL!!

The drive alone would have been perfection for a Sunday afternoon. But the pictographs we were about to discover were just amazing.

We found the trail head pretty easily. Lion's Mouth Cave has some of the most vibrant images I've seen with no graffiti. This site is truly a treasure.

Cool plankton looking dude

Bright colors with extensive detail

This looked like Phoenix Rising to me :)

These kids ... so LUCKY

Still trying to figure these glyphs out.. not sure what they could represent. Any ideas?
The hike was less than a mile. Crazy, right? Such a special area and I can only imagine what else could be nearby.

Close up of Plankon (seriously Sponge Bob fans, am I right??!?)

Just hangin' out in a cave with 10,000 year old art. No big.

Happy hikers

Weird bacon glyph :)

Bear tracks and stuff
What an awesome day. Two more pics and then I'll be done :)

JJ took this cool shot of me that I LOVE and then one more of this cool butterfly that is always hangin' around. I finally got his pic after he stop dive-bombing us.

This persistent winged friend is always flappin' around
Awesome birthday weekend for me. Hiking, colorful leaves, pumpkin spiced coffee and snacks, chilly air, blue skies... Yeh. Life is pretty awesome :)
