Back down through Fredonia and out 89A to the Ryan rd/Fr22 down to FR423 and 237 to camp above Table Rock along Snake Gulch at A, tomorrow's venue for pictographs and petroglyphs.
A local in Kanab mentioned this little cave up on the cliffside, just past the oak corral that had petroglyphs in it, naturally we tried to get to it.
This isn't it, became obvious that we'd need more time to approach that one safely so we backed off.
And settled for a telephoto grab:
Into Snake Gulch:
The first overhang and petro/picto panel.
Sally is down by what looks to be the fire pit end.
It's unbelievable how much these have been vandalized/scratched over. IMO the only suitable canvas for graffiti is a big box store. I'd make an exception for a few other places but really don't understand the need to deface this stuff.
Sally found this scorpion of sorts holed up till sundown.
We start our return to the trail head spying a few more glyphs and graphs along the way. At about mile 12-13 and close to the Jeep, I'm feeling a little tired and not paying as much attention to where I'm walking when I hear the rattle directly to my right, by my foot. I must have jumped 6 feet. This guy was tucked behind a hummock of grass a foot or so from the trail and gracious enough to let me off with a warning:
Luckily, Sally was a good 25 ft behind me, she went down into the gully to skirt around him. We're both glad we got to see two of these, very cool.
Had an interesting gps experience here which reinforces my slight mistrust of them.
It had us walking 12.8 miles when I knew we'd only come in about 6. Add to that maybe 2 miles of back and forth between canyon walls, it was still off by 4+ miles in terms of distance walked. I shut it off before heading back to save the batteries, so I don't know what it's total error may have been.
Back at the trail head for a dash to Crazy Jug point(see B, on map above)
