My favorites are the Rio Grande and Sunset photos. We could use some new photos also over at the MSN group Big Bend Photos if you want to post up to 55 or more depending upon your hotmail or net passport capacity. Thanks.

Ok.  A few pictures.  These three are on Indian Head Springs trail.  A lot more petraglyphs than just two and more Matate than you can count.  One of the interesting side issues is someone carved their names on one of the petraglyphs, but it was done in the early 1900's, so I guess it is kind of interesting.

The trail head is outside Study Butte.  At the road intersection, and we know there is only one in Study Butte, take indian head springs road.  It is a dirt road that ends at the park boundry.  The trail head is through the fence.  Just follow the mountain on your left for about .75 miles and you get to the Petraglyphs.  The spring is farther on, at just less than a mile.   Nice easy hike.

Weird...
« Reply #6 on: January 15, 2006, 10:56:46 PM »
Weird how the human, or non-human, mind works - with regards to carving initials in things or defacing them, etc.  On our most recent hike up through Pine Canyon we noticed that several people had carved their initials in the trees.    Things that I would never ever even consider.  When we have found ancient stuff before - cave writings, etc. - we've always been careful not to get near them and to only take pictures - never even touching them.  I guess some want to leave a lasting legacy of Jim Bob Loves Sue Elen etched in a tree or a rock.  Good thing I didn't catch them doing the carving.  No wonder Ranger Rick never wants to share information - "some, a few - the vast minority" can't be trusted.  But, it only takes one idiot to carve their names in something to ruin it for all...

Awesome......it's hard to get a bad pic of the Rio Grande down there......As far as the name carving.....yeesh! I can't understand it. What really tans my hide is when I see garbage someone was too lazy to hold on to. I always have ziploc bags for my pack out and try to pick it up if it's small enough.....but it ALWAYS makes me boil to see it! And if I ever saw it happening.....Oh Dear......ask questions later!!!!!!! :evil:

Zip Lock Bag...
« Reply #10 on: January 16, 2006, 08:12:33 PM »
Speaking of zip lock bags, when we checked in at BBNP to get our assigned campsite, the very cute coed Jr. Park Ranger volunteer from VT gave us a single zip lock bag to put our TP in - mind you - about a pint size bag.  TP=Toilet Paper.  PT=Paper Towel.  8)
