12/9/2020 Rio Bravo Road RA, near Maricopa, AZ - Yester I met a couple at the hiking, and they mentioned me this site. The site is just road side and attached to private wire fence, but its in the public land that a neighbor said. There are many petroglyphs, sad thing is many fading out.

12/19/2020 Fortaleza RA, Gela Bend, AZ - There are ruins beside the rock art. I didn’t see the ruins and found only three or four small petroglyphs, I guess I didn’t go to the right place. Oh well... I try again in future.

12/22/2020 Woolsey Wash Butte RA, near Painted Rock Dam, AZ - This is a mountain that covered by rocks all over. I was not intended to hike up such a rocky mountain, but faded sign said 'archaeological', a means there are RA on the mountain. The sign was right, there are petroglyphs at the peak, 20ft east of the BM.

12/23/2020 Agua Caliente RA, AZ - I’ve hiked around south side of the mountain range that my target area to find the RA, but found no RA. Then hiked around southern most like a island and atop is like a light house. I found one petroglyph there. I am sure there are some more RA, but I had a no luck.

12/24/2020 Arizona Rockies, Kofa National Wildlife Refuge, AZ - From the highway #95, mountain range is very beautiful, I have to stop to enjoy the view. Those mountains are not friendly for hiking but impressive look, especially just before the sunset, like all those mountains are fire.

12/25/2020 Tyson Wash RA, Quartzsite, AZ - There are many ATV roads around here, a means easy to confuse. A ATV guy took me to the RA site, when I asked, people are very nice here. The site is in the dry wash, many petroglyphs are fading out. I learned the LTVA (Long Term Visitor Area), that camp 6 months for $180, which $1/day that a good deal. However there are many free camp sites, still $180/6 months is costly.

12/27/2020 Horse Tanks, Kofa National Wildlife Refuge, AZ - TH is the end of the dirt road, short hike to get to the Horse Tanks. Seems to not enough water in the tank, several tanks there but only one large tank has some water. Those tanks are drinking water for animals. There are many free camp sites both sides of the road.

12/27/2020 Horse Tanks RA, Kofa National Wildlife Refuge, AZ - I found RAs in two separate areas, one is a boulder and another one is in and around the alcove. Volcanic rocks are not ideal for the petroglyphs that I think, but creators didn’t care. There are graffiti on the boulder on the petroglyphs.

12/31/2020 Guadalupe Mountain, AZ - Atop of the mountain, there are many towers. Possible to drive up to the peak, even some segments of the road are very steep. View is gorgeous, can see far distance for 360°. There are many good size rocks but I found no RA.
