This pictograph panel featured what might have been the largest single figures I've ever seen in such a panel. I'd say 8 to 10 feet at least, when considering the lower part of the panel appears to have fallen away at some point in the past.
Excited for @wickertjess. She's returning to this part of Capitol Reef to lead a friend out on her first backpacking trip today.
A Dang obstacle in a Dang Canyon.
Makes me wonder what the serpents represent. #rockart #pictographs
Had a fantastic time among the Swell on our little #backcountryfest over the weekend. Got to camp with and meet a lot of great people from @backcountrypost in person for the first time as well as some familiar faces. Highlight of the trip was the adventurous obstacle course loop that is Ding and Dang Canyons.
This Lone Warrior really was all alone this morning with nobody else around. As was the other pictograph panels and an arch nearby in the area that can all be driven right up to. Weird...
First two times I visited the Tanks at Capitol Reef National Park, they were mostly dry and empty. The last two times, all full!
Went to go retrieve a water bottle I mistakenly left behind at a lesser visited rest stop while on a backpacking route last fall. Someone else must have picked it up since then because it was nowhere to be found today. Glad to have the company of these two girls though!
