10/28/2022 McKinley Ranch, NM - The owner of ranch was passed the way on January, which I didn’t know it. The owner was very nice to me, I’ve stopped by whenever I travel around here, and always welcome me. I miss him. The new owner, next generation, took over the ranch. Grandson told me where to find the rock arts in the two separate areas and I found many.

10/29/2022 Witch Well Canyon Rock Art, north of St. Johns, AZ - I couldn’t find the way to hike down to the bottom of the canyon, where I was hiking on the mesa. I found a few rock art panels look down other side of the canyon. I think I have a good idea to go down to the bottom of the canyon that leave it for next time.

10/31/2022 Little Colorado River, south of Woodruff, AZ - There is not many ways to reach the bottom of the river around here. Even lucky enough to reach the bottom of the river which is just like the top of the sand dune, river runs about 20ft below it and no way to cross the river. I’ve hiked small segment of the top of the sand dune area, where rock art panels are located other side of the top of the sand dune area.

11/13/2022 Silver Creek, north of Snowflake, AZ - I tried to get to the confluence of Tenmile Draw and Silver Creek. There is a memorial sign who lost their son, a means possible to the 2-300 ft cliffs down to get to the bottom of the creek, but that sign fleaked me out. Instead of go down to the bottom of the creek, hike on the cliff instead, but cliff is so deep, I hardly can see the creek bed. Unexpectedly, I saw a old house that at the top of the cliff edge, I wonder why built a house at incredibly dangerous place. Also I’ve stop by to the Cottonwood wash.

In this park there is 2,700 rock art sites, I managed to visit around 20 today.
