For this day's hike I climbed into the hills nearby to explore around.
Oh the things I find in the desert amazes me.
This was a small flat area between two hilltops.
Someone or more put in a lot of time and effort in this rock art.
This I had no idea what it was until I got into this position.
A bighorn sheep which do live in the mountains around here.
This too I could not figure out until I walked around it.
"Oh, a scorpion." Yeah, I didn't get it at first.
I thought this one of those sacred spiral things but it was a snake.
The most impressive one left no doubt what it was.
The head of the snake. Notice the white eyes and forked tongue.
The head is one big heavy rock. I couldn't lift it.
This pretty much clears the idea that these rock sculptures were done by the "ancient ones".
There were no footprints anywhere around except for mine.
