    Pictographs, Petroglyphs & Ghost Towns

    I was on my own to find something to do on Saturday, so I hopped in my Jeep and headed north a little ways to Canyon Pintado to visit a few sites I didn't make it to the last time I was there.

    My first stop was at East Four Mile Draw where I would find the Sun Dagger pictograph.







    Then I hiked to some petroglyphs nearby.









    After leaving Four Mile Draw I started heading further north towards Rangely. I stopped along the highway at another site I spotted these rock formations.

    I topped off my fuel tank in Rangely and headed south to the Shield site.


    Followed by visiting the pteroglyph panel at Fremont Ridge.






    From Fremont Ridge I headed to the main destination I wanted to check out on this trip; the Carot Man panel.

    After checking out all the pictograph and petroglyph sites I had planned to visit, it was time to head into the Book Cliffs on my way home. I started out by heading over Rabbit Mountain and then dropping down into Hells Hole.





    I made a quick stop at the ghost town of Watson.







    Then drove through Rainbow on my way to Dragon where I stopped at the gilsonite mine.

    I passed some interesting rock formations on my way back to the highway.

    Then I followed the rougher track along Missouri Creek back to the pavement before heading home.

    Cabins along the way.




    It was a fun little day trip :)
