Pleasant Creek Petroglyphs

I took the family on a hike this year we hadn't been on before to see a petroglyph panel on Pleasant Creek in Capitol Reef National Park. This was courageous on the familys part as last year I took them on a hike that turned into something similar to the Donner Party. Well there wasn't any of that cannibalism stuff we had plenty to eat, it was more like dehydration, hallucinations, ants hauling off the smallest children and more than a little crying. The petroglyphs were quite cool and anytime I run across pictographs and petroglyphs that include hand prints it really adds a personal element to them.

Here is some bear prints and what looks like a rare spotted aardvark.
