    Nine Mile Canyon, Round Two

    I returned to Nine Mile Canyon on Sunday--the second trip in as many weeks--to find some rock art I'd missed the previous weekend. I found the Owl Panel this time. It turns out last time I was one canyon too far over. I was surprised by how many other petroglyphs were in the same area as the Owl Panel, and I spent a good chunk of time in the area.

    Whoa, dude, put that thing away!

    A family of legless sheep(?)

    Sparsely-pecked sheep

    This is a great figure, down-canyon from the Own Panel and high on a cliff

    Another odd leashed(?) sheep, this time with the leash held by a deer

    Sheep (notice the forked tongue(?) on the deer)


    Next I stopped at the Echo Site to look for a petroglyph panel that I had somehow not seen earlier. It turned out to be ridiculously obvious and I'm still not sure how I failed to see it before.

    I continued toward Cottonwood Canyon and stopped at a few random sites along the way. It began raining when I got to the parking spot for the Great Hunt Panel, so I jogged down the new (since I was last there) gravel path to the rock art panel, snapped two photos, then hurried back to the Jeep.

    I drove to near the end of the road along Nine Mile Canyon and saw a couple of petroglyph panels near the road, plus several way up high that will have to wait until better weather. The rain wasn't letting up so I turned around and headed for home. As I ascended the canyon the rain turned to snow, and I ran hail and heavy rain on the way back to Price.
