Pictograph Wall in Calf Creek Canyon

From the trail, these are visible but hard to really appreciate without a powerful viewing scope, so I left the trail, crossed the creek, and worked my way up (a little Class 4 scrambling at the end), where I got a close-up view of these human-size figures. It was then that I discovered the figure on the right, which is incredibly hard to notice from the trail unless you already know about it and where it is.

Unfortunately, some yahoo(s) left some vandalism behind between the second and third figures, but the figures are still worth seeing up close.
