5/1/2022 Cane Wash Rock Art, San Rafael Swell, UT - There are two pictographs sites in this area, I have been to one before, distance is one hundred feet apart with bird’s eye or drone’s view. But hike around the sand stone fin like peninsula that cost me about additional one mile hike. When I got there, front of the huge cliff wall, I can not find any pictographs panels, suppose to two panels. One panel is 2 o'crock direction from the window and another one is 5 o'clock direction from the window. Those are faded out and not visible anymore I guess. But how did some one got to the window area???
