Day 12 - More Petroglyphs Whether You Want Them or Not

Today we went for a hike to Hidden Valley above the town of Moab. A relatively easy hike with some rock hopping involved. Skeena enjoyed the day immensely because she got to go along. We spent several hours perusing the cliffs and the petroglyphs once we got to the top. Hopefully the pictures display so you can get an idea of these ancient artists work. They really are unique. It makes you wonder what would cause them to choose the locations for their artwork and what the significance of the chosen locations is. It is a lot of fun to take the time to wander around the desert. The temperature this time of year during the day is perfect for this and add to that there are absolutely no crowds to hinder your hero shots. After returning from the hike in the am we tried to go for a mountain bike ride but the route didn't work out. So, we called it a day.
