    Hike to Horseshoe Canyon and the Great Gallery

    My brother recently travelled to Horseshoe Canyon as he is a petro/pictograph junky and created a trip report video. If I do say so myself - It's pretty good!

    I haven't been myself but it is on my list in the upcoming years.

    It's about 10 minutes long FYI.

    That's a great video! Thanks for sharing. I haven't been there for almost 10 years, but my parents were just there a few weeks ago. I'm feeling like it's time I need to get back out there again.

    It's quite unique...and although I've seen a million petro/pictographs, this place has a real "spiritual" kinda feel to it. Coming from a guy who isn't "spiritual" at all.

    Other interesting ones are out near the Grand Canyon...there are some in the western end to look like the artists were on a heavy acid trip. Also, there is a pictograph in Snake Gulch of a Kokopelli with a hard on squirting out little humans.
    We're ALL a little crazy
    It's just that some people can maintain a straight line better than others.

    Thanks! I’ll pass on your sentiments.

    I think it would be great to link up BlueJohn canyon and few other technical canyons in the Roost and explore more of Horsehoe.

    I mean there is one pictograph labeled “the Holy Ghost” there.

    It’s crazy just to think about how humans lived there (without our advances in technology) thousands of years before is there and created so many scenes and memories or other acid trip rock art

    Snake Gulch? Is that one in Escalante?

    No...it's a very long canyon off the western end of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon...drains into Kanab Creek. Full of ruins and rock art.
