Head Spur

On our second day in the desert, we rode toward the pyramid-shaped Head Spur.
Daisy enjoyed a dip in a pool.
Steve pointed out the Princess pictograph, which is faint now, faded by with sun and weather.
Behind some brush, a pour-off marks the entry of Moqui Canyon into the Spur Fork.
These small pictographs, only a couple of inches tall, have amazing detail.  The 4 figures on the right wear elaborate headdress.  They seem to be under some kind of tent or overhang.  On the right, we see 3 figures, a bird and a couple of insects?  It's always interesting to try to interpret ancient drawings.
On a rock wall near the Head Spur, we saw this rock art.  Someone in 1924 made his/her mark.
We rode back to the trailer at a trot, covering some rough country.


  1. It's too bad some people feel they need to 'add' to the artifacts they find in our parks and other places. I'm glad to see that Daisy still enjoys a quick dip whenever possible.

  2. The pictographs are superb. I would love to see one in real life.
