5/2/2021 Uranium Springs, AZ - This place is located hideout upper side of the canyon, which is 40 acres of the private land. They have an annual party called the Detonation, which is small scale of the Burning Man in NV, and schedule is 10/25 to 11/1 for this year. I’ve hiked out around it to find RA, but no luck.

5/6/2021 Pinta Road RA, near Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - What’s a day! My plan was to visit one of the RA sites, but road was closed that upset me. I decided to drive on the Pinta Road, then found RA on side of the road, there are many RAs that made my day!

5/8/2021 Wenima Wildlilfe North, Springerville, AZ - There are two Wenima Wildlife Areas that I didn’t know it, so that I’ve visited north side today, where both sites have RAs. Odd thing is, foot only is allowed to go in but gate is closed. Nice area, I found some RAs but not many. Confusingly there are many wire fences all over.

5/13/2021 Black Panel, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - I wanted to come to this area for few days, there are many rocks and boulders but no guarantee to find the RAs. Lucky enough I found two black panels at separate areas, and some more RAs. It’t beautiful area, I enjoyed it.

5/14/2021 Tall Man Panel, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - I better to say 'Tall and Skinny Man Panel'. The head part of the petroglyph is missing, assume the boulder tumbled then lost part, this is 6ft tall man, if include head part. The panel is side way, just like photos. Also I found another RA panel.

5/15/2021 Porter Canyon North, Holbrook, AZ - I’ve hiked south side of the canyon before, today hiked north side. I tried to get the bottom of the canyon bed, but couldn’t find way to go down, I’ve hike to the canyon rim instead. Nearly end of the canyon, finally I had a chance to get down, then found one RA panel at the natural dam area and I couldn’t go through that dam.

5/17/2021 Dead Wash RA, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - There are many RAs in this wash, however my legs didn’t cooperate well, my mind wants to go father but my legs want to quit, and legs won, which was 12 miles of the round trip. Bird catching scene was bonus for today, which I wanted to see it for while.

5/19/2021 He-Man Site, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - I was very lucky today the rancher open the gate to let me in, I didn’t know there are road and gate there, I’ve saved time by not hike the long distance. There are nice petroglyphs in few areas.

5/20/2021 Pinta Valley RA, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - Confusingly it is located in the private property in the Petrified Forest National Park. The owner kindly let me explore in their property, even told me where to find the petroglyphs. I found unique petroglyphs in several separate areas.

5/23/2021 Duckhead Man Panel, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - I was in this area not long ago, but missed petroglyphs that located at the high-up cliff. Last couple days were very strong wind and impossible to hike. I have a lot of energy today to hike up/down the hills. I saw many duckhead man figures in Utah, this is the first time I saw it in Arizona.

5/24/2021 Big Feet Panel, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - Totally different two areas that I found RAs today. One area that the Big Feet Panel has large two feet and hands with a small head. Also I found some more panels at the high up the cliff near by. Another area that the south entrance of the park.

5/26/2021 Lithodendron Wash Hike, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - Hike started at the Devils Playground parking lot and hike to the north east on the Lithodendron Wash.

5/30/2021 Puerco River, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - I’ve hiked one segment of the Puerco River that seems to promising to find the RA. However I didn’t find RA as much as I was expected. River and tons of rocks/boulders that the key to find the RA that I thought, but in this time, not that way.
