20160512_124351Getting back onto the hardball and heading west on highway 163, I quickly found my next adventure heading back off the road into Lower Butler Wash and searching for the Wolfman Pictograph Site. At about a mile north of highway 163 I make my way down this dirt road that is being consumed by the grasslands. At the end of the road I once again have to resort to hiking the rest of the way.

20160510_070422I recently returned from Utah on a 5 day adventure touring some petroglyphs around Green River and the Four Corners Region. Camping under the stars and hiking into some of these remote areas was exhilarating and exhausting. Utah in May is still very comfortable with highs in the 80-90’s and lows averaging around 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
