    Dragonfly and Blue-Eyed Princess

    Saturday was a nearly perfect day for a hike. I checked out the Dragonfly and Blue-Eyed Princess pictograph panels, the former of which is one of the best I've ever seen! The Dragonfly panel sits on an angled wall at the back of an alcove, and to the left in a deeper part of the alcove are a few slab-lined granaries held together with mud. There is also quite a bit of lithic scatter and broken pottery of all sorts lying on the ground in and around the alcove.

    The details in the Dragonfly panel are tiny and several of the figures are quite different from the many I've seen nearby.

    The Blue-Eyed Princess panel, which by itself is interesting and worth visiting, pales in comparison to Dragonfly. The main figure and namesake of the panel has two differently-colored eyes, but I couldn't tell whether they were actually blue. The surfaces behind the two largest figures had been abraded smooth before painting, and there were several other such spots that had been prepared but never painted. If the artist had followed through on his or her plans to paint all of the prepared areas, this would have been one amazing panel.

    wow so cool. This is a site I'm just now hearing about. Is this one you'd be willing to share the location of privately?

    Great pics. I have seen a couple of pics of these sites before and have searched for clues for their location, but have not had any luck.
    I would be willing to trade some information for these spots for any locations/directions that I may have that you might be searching for.......
    Check out puts the age of these at approximately 400 to 700 years old.
    Some get the Blue-eyed Princess and the Moqui Queen / Moqui Princess mixed up; which is a similar Barrier Style pictograph.
    "At a Barrier Canyon Site in North Wash called the "Moki Queen" is a zoomorph. It was first reported and photographed in 1932 by Julian H. Steward"
