Capitol Reef Rock Art

Last weekend we spent a day poking around Pleasant Creek Canyon in Capitol Reef National Park, which contains a permanent stream and a lot of rock art. The art was left by the Fremont people, who lived in the area until about 700 years ago; it isn’t clear why they left (or died out) but climate change is suspected. Pictures towards the bottom of the page are from the following day in an unnamed hoodoo field just outside Teasdale, UT.
