Returned to Holbrook for the 3rd in my "get out of the heat/get out of the house" summer series.

First day I planned a "speculative search" west of Jasper Forest to see what I could see. This amounts to walking the bottom edges of the low mesas looking for petroglyphs and whatever. It's nice walking but the light colored rocks were not conducive to writing though I enjoyed the scenery and kept looking. Eventually I found some petroglyphs in a "boulder pile".

I knew the rocks were darker in this area and wanted to spend more effort looking but ran into some National Park fences which stopped me. I know the Park boundary is complex: it has been expanded but runs into checkerboard issues with private land and State Trust that may (or may not) be resolved. Even if ownership is resolved the Park hasn't necessarily "opened" the expansion-lands to the public. Oh well.

I did find an interesting area full of pottery though. So I had that going for me.

Only mid-80s, but with monsoon humidity and bright sun I was glad to get back to the car and then Motel 6 Holbrook.
