My idea of an escape from civilization. 🙂

This large pictograph Located in Horseshoe Canyon in Canyonlands National Park was made by Western Archaic Indians and dates back somewhere between 1,000-6,000 B.C. To visit this place, I left early in the morning before sunrise and hiked 750 feet down into Horseshoe Canyon with nobody else for miles around. Up on top rim of the canyon I set up camp the night before and listened to the coyotes howl. The next day I was expecting to see other people but there was nobody. These images on rock speak volumes about the past without words but the interpretation is left to the viewer. This panel is referred to as the Great Gallery or the Holy Ghost; with no arms or legs perhaps these entities represent spirits?
