Steep hike to amazing rock art!

Sunshine and Kokopelli FTW
I'm trying to see the silver lining right now with the mass hysteria surrounding COVID-19. Kids are homeschoolin', work is crazy, and being so far away from my friends and family in PA has me stressed. Thank goodness for outdoor therapy. It's a real thing, y'all!

Over the weekend we packed up the fam and headed east to a secret little spot that I had some vague directions for. I figured if we didn't find the petroglyphs, we'd at least get out of the house and under those blue skies of the mountain west.

possibly the largest piece of pottery we've seen 'in the wild'

love seeing this stuff -- painted pottery circa a really long time ago

After hiking for quite a while, and seeing that the 'road ahead' was super steep and sandy, I let the kids lead us all UP and through.. until in the faint distance I could see a flat section of cliff up ahead that looked promising. I really hoped we were on the right track (by now the kids were over the sand hill!)

A quarter mile of glyphs!

random glyphs everywhere we looked.

These were super neat!
It was such an amazing and rewarding day -- filled with much needed distractions from the current state of the world.

Remember during this time to get outside and inhale/exhale. Call your friends and family. Help your neighbors. Stay healthy. We'll get through this!
