Pictograph in Calf Creek Canyon
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
This is one of the pictographs visible on the far side of the canyon from the trail. Since the figures appear tiny from the trail and are hard to appreciate, I ventured over for a close look, ending up right next to them. There is no telling for sure what this figure-- painted several hundred years ago-- is supposed to represent. To me, the horn-like appendages suggest a spirit, but that is merely a guess. One of the really interesting things is that this is one of three figures linked by their hands. It is the middle figure, and all three are human-sized.
