Second day, heading back from Holbrook toward Snowflake on the Old Woodruff Road which parallels the Little Colorado River and Silver Creek. They sustained natives for thousands of years and have loads of petroglyphs.

First stop was to a location north of Woodruff which a "HAZ buddy" told me about. I visited once before but without a camera. Many nice glyphs here but the sun and shadows made seeing them difficult.

Second stop was speculative at the intersection of the LCR with Silver Creek. I figured a major junction like that would have attracted a crowd and corresponding rock art. What I found was that there was an interesting dam at Silver Creek just above the confluence and a heck of a lot of trees and bushes in the gorge. I liked the dam but didn't make much of an effort to look for petroglyphs.

Last target was another confluence. Private property signs hampered access but eventually I found a way. There were some petroglyphs here but again the bushes and relatively high water kept me from a careful search. But it was a different and enjoyable route home to Phoenix from the Petrified Forest.
