9/2/2022 Camp Creek Rock Art, MT - It is a small pictographs panel just below the dam. It is not easy to find it because trees are hiding it from the view. Lucky me, one of the local resident tooks me here to show it to me, otherwise I never find it. Tree shade bothered me for taking photos, but that all I can have.

9/2/2022 Beaverhead Rock, MT - This Beaverhead Rock is visible from the long distance, it is place to meet when traveling at long time ago. It is a historical rock and people were depending on it. There is a nice lake/river front of the rock, but in the private property.

9/3/2022 Clark Canyon Reservoir, MT - It is a beautiful large reservoir, unfortunately water level is too low. Wild fires from the west of states caused to get bad air quality here today. I was planning to stay couple weeks here to find many rock art, but my health is more important, moved away from bad air quality that I did.

9/6/2022 Museum of the Beartooths, Columbus, MT - Very organized inside the museum. They are organizing the obituary record for all passed residents with papers rather than digital, that a laber of love. My suggestion is to make a website and anyone access from any places to see the record of the treasure.

9/7/2022 Pryor Mountains, MT - Someone gave me the information of the rock art site in the small canyon. So that I’ve hiked around, unfortunately I couldn’t find it. Suppose to there are three canyons, but only one canyon I found. There is no trail, it was real hike which I didn’t do for while.

9/7/2022 Crooked Creek HIke, MT - This area is near the border of the Wyoming and Montana, Montana side. It is beautiful area, red color rock one side and other color other side. I got an information of the rock art site, but at the end of the trail, trail became drop out cliff that freaked me out and came back. Even couldn’t find it, nice place to hike. I saw not so old bear dropping that made uncomfortable for hike solo.

9/11/2022 Crooked Creek Rock Art, MT - Today was lucky day because ranchers took me and guests and dogs to the rock art site, which I couldn’t find it yesterday. The site is located on the cliff that side of the Crooked Creek. Hike was bushwhacking, cross the creek, get wet, and scrambling. It is beautiful area, cliff walls are dominated. I’m so glad finally saw the petroglyphs. Thank you all.

9/13/2022 Greybull South Site, WY - Three parts to cover the Greybull South Rock Art Site, 1st part is original location, 2nd part is Buffalo Bill Museum, 3rd part is Archaeological Repository in the University of Wyoming. Here is 1st Part: Removed some of petroglyphs panels from the cliff walls that caused ugly holes of the scar on the cliff walls. A good news is they didn’t removed all petroglyphs panels, there are many more nice panels left and we can enjoy to see it.

9/14/2022 Buffalo Bill Museum, Cody, WY - 2nd Part of the Greybull South Site: After removed petroglyphs panels from the original site of the Greybull South Site, sent it to this museum and display it for half century. Still three smaller panels are remind in this museum. Few years back they return most of the petroglyphs panels to the Archaeological Repository.

9/15/2022 Medicine Bow Museum, WY - I wanted to see the dinosaur bone house that suppose to relocate from 10 miles east to the museum. I don’t see the house in the museum, according to a local that project started 3 years ago and still on the process, another a year or so to complete it. Move a small house need 4 years to complite, I don’t get it.

9/16/2022 Archaeological Repository, University of Wyoming, Laramie, WY - 3nd Part of the Greybull South Site: When Buffalo Museum had returned the petroglyphs panels that removed from the Greybull South Site, it all came to this facility. The panels are stored in the dark room. I felt so sad because those petroglyphs panels are not belong to here.

9/19/2022 Purgatoire River Rock Art, Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site, CO - I found 5 petroglyphs sites along the road that runs by the Purgatoire River. There are many more but my hike was cut in short because I got a blister near the bunion, both blister and bunion were killing me, about 7 miles one way turned back.

9/25/2022 Zookeeper Site, Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site, CO - To find this site was hard, not only distance, total 14 miles, there are many rocks/boulders/giant boulders, and scramble up to the higher side. Ready to give up for finding and hidden between giant boulders, the panel appeared, that was 'WOW' moment. In this panel, there are many animals that link to each other. I am so glad that I found this panel.

9/27/2022 Purgatoire River Rock Art #2, Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site, CO - This area is little south side of the Dinosaur Tracking. I found five new separated rock art sites today. I did short cut that saved least 6 miles and 3 hours. I think continue to hike up and down the rugged hills, which were not easy, but can find some more rock art panels in this area that leave to next time.

9/28/2022 Koshare Indian Museum, La Junta, CO - I have missed their dance show by least couple months, which performed in June and July, on Saturday at 7-8:30pm. Inside the museum has separate few rooms, one large circle room is the where dance performed. Koshare(clown) that black and white striped characters who teaches 'what not to do' or unacceptable behavior to young people in humorous way.

9/29/2022 Hogback, Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site, CO - It is in the militally base, procedures were hectic to civilian (me in this case) to access to the Hogback Rock Art site. I was lucky to have an archaeologist leading rock art tour today. Petroglyphs are located on the individual black rocks, relatively smaller size. Agreement with Archaeologist to not post petroglyphs photos. She took my photo that petroglyphs did not showed up, all black, I guess I can post this photo.

9/29/2022 San Isabel National Forest, CO - It is a time to change color of Aspen Trees to golden color that tells Fall is here. Couple more weeks, all leaves are change to gold color that should be a gorgeous. Everyone busy all the time, but spend time to smell the roses or go up to the mountain to enjoy changed aspen trees leaves.
