Petroglyph Wall

This wall of petroglyphs is unprotected by a fence or barrier of any kind, which unfortunately means that many of the carvings have been destroyed or colored on. I managed to get plenty of photos, though.

I even stumbled upon a few patches of healthy cryptobiotic soil (yeah, “the crust” you hear so much about at Arches), which meant that nobody had set foot on that particular patch of earth for hundreds of years. I couldn’t believe it.

We enjoyed climbing around on the big chunks of sandstone that had fallen from the cliff face, and I made a tiny cairn—don’t worry, I didn’t leave it standing! I just wanted to take some photos of it.
