Heard about this cave (actually, there are several caves in the vicinity) and decided to check it out for ourselves. Supposedly the cave got it's name for the engraved profile of a cowboy (replete with 10-gallon hat and cigarette). We talked with a rancher before dropping into the canyon and he said he and his buddies always called it the "Indian Cave". Sadly, modern-day graffiti is so overwhelming that it's likely many of the ancient petroglyphs are indiscernible. Still, there are some good big horn sheep, turkey tracks, and a bison to be seen. There's also an ingeniously-constructed seeping-water-capture device that's piped from one of the caves out to a watering trough. It's still working to this day.
