Colorado Mystery Glyphs

                    On the first leg of our last adventure, we found some time to visit the Colorado Mystery Glyphs as we headed East. IMG_2335IMG_2318

We had started out the morning of May 9th, 2015.

A few misadventures with a lost checkbook set us off later than intended, but Stephen and I met up with Terry, Utahna and Kayla in Spanish Fork Canyon and were soon on our way.

After a nice drive around and looking down a side canyon or two we made it to our destination and headed down to the glyphs.

It being her first glyph, Kayla also looked a bit skeptical at what we were seeing. Our guide assured us they were real enough.
