Driving out of Canyonlands Islands in the Sky District to head over to the Horseshoe district.
We spy the rocks of Arches National Park in the distance.
The San Rafael Reef pokes out in the distance. Beautiful!
Driving in the ~30 miles to the Horseshoe district. It's a long drive on dirt but worth it.
Beautiful sand dunes on the drive to the Horseshoe District.
At the trailhead we found this description of the hike. Every description was different. I think this was about the average distance/elevation gain among the many descriptions we found.
We descend through different layers of sandstone types.
We'll drop into the canyon and then hike down the canyon to find the glyphs.
Very cool section of trail through here
The trail will take us down there.
Not even once.
The trail switchbacks down a couple hundred feet to the bottom of the canyon.
At the bottom of the canyon.
It isn't long until we spy the first set of pictographs.
This is the High Gallery, so named because it's, well, high up on the wall.
The High Gallery, Horseshoe Canyon Canyonlands
Close by, on the other side of the canyon, we find this other panel.
