...for the interesting pictographs. I was not expecting such a scenic canyon, it was wonderful. My son Evan accompanied me, and turned 19 this day.

I planned a visit here for a long time, but always felt guilty to leave my dog at home. Anyway, definitively a nice place to explore, I would not camp at the parking lot. Much better and nicer places when driving to Blue John canyon - west fork offers some spectacular primitive camping and away from crowds.

Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2010


Nice peaceful, and interesting half day stroll. Taking our time we checked out all four rock art galleries. Learned that the canyon is home to more unadvertised rock art galleries also. Need to get back and find the unadvertised galleries!

Round trip was around 4 hours.

Peaceful and warm in the canyon while cold at the upper road. Nice history very unique with lots of petroglyphs and few dinosaur's foot prints.

Made me feel like a speck in time. Sure made the coyotes jealous of my sausage and pancakes breakfast back at camp though.

A long way off the beaten path but worth it for the privilege of viewing the ancient rock art.

Normally one for summits and ridges, this canyon proved impressive, both for the scenery and for its record of human history.

March 1999 with D-bo
Enjoyed the remoteness, the hike (despite the heat), and the pictographs. Definitely wouldn't mind returning some time.

Absolutley stunning and beautiful! Had the entire canyon to myself! Couldn't believe it. Spent the night under the stars in only my sleeping bag. Cold but manageble. Will definately return one day.

I've been here several times and hope to return many more times.
This panel is the "Sistine Chapel Ceiling' of rock art with over two hundred images. And, it's a very spiritual place.

This is one of the best rock art sites that I have seen. My favorite was the Holy Ghost. A very unique and beautiful place.
