On Friday I finally went to Sedona to see some of the pictograph sites, and lucky to find a few petroglyphs. Earlier in the year I saw a photoset, [ photoset ] , that got me doing some research on the area. Found some info that was really helpful.

First site I visited was in Hartwell Canyon. I took the scenic route in hopes I would find something interesting on the way. I didn't, but I found the large site I was looking for. Real nice site unfortunately there is modern graffiti there. Looking around I found a point, arrowhead, on the slope leading to the site. One of the best I found. I think that makes it 17 now.

On the way back to the jeep I took a different scenic route. Lucky me. I saw a small wall up in the cliffs. I put on the telephoto lens and saw a white checkered like design on the wall next to the small wall. Made my way up and found a few white and red pictographs on the wall and found a petroglyph panel. The petroglyph panel was facing up in a small clamshell area. You can see the photo in my photoset. I actually found another ruin site on the way to the jeep. It had cultural material around the ruin but no Picto/petroglyphs around it.

After seeing some great stuff, I hopped in the jeep and moved down toward Honaki. I was looking for a new site in Loy Canyon. The info I founded called it Snake Pictograph Site. Half of the hike was on an established trail then the other half was free styling though I did find a set of footprints that I began to follow. I left you a set of footprint if you go. Oh this was a great site. I have to go back in the early morning so the site is shaded and I can see and photograph some other good pictographs. In one area of the site there is a motion camera. You dont see it at first because you turn a corner around a large rock and see this great panel. The panel distracts you so much that you dont see the camera. It's a good thing to have a camera there. Just incase someone does something stupid. WE WANT YOU BIG BROTHER(DB)
