Little Ms. E and I ventured out for a short hike Wednesday morning to a pictograph site. This is the fifth Indian rock art site I’ve taken her to and it required the longest and most strenuous hike for her yet. I ended up carrying her on my shoulders, but we made it. It will be some time before she’s ready to visit the more remote backcountry sites, but as she gets older we’ve been extending the range of our outings a little at a time.
The pictograph adorns the wall of a shallow, northwest facing alcove overlooking a small seasonal creek. There are no bedrock mortars. The outcrop sits along the top of a rolling hill of grass and chaparral near the mouth of a canyon and it offers expansive views of the surrounding countryside.
