Wat je gaat doen

You will be following me on both pavement & dirt roads. We’ll caravan thru Sunset Crater National Monument, passing thru lava flows & volcanoes that erupted as recently as 900 years ago. As we drop towards the painted desert the vistas will expand and seem near endless. After leaving the pavement you’ll follow me along the Little Colorado River (typically dry). Once we park our vehicles we’ll set off on foot to start exploring rock outcroppings of sandstone&discovering petroglyphs of varying styles & ages. If your skill level & adventure level are higher we may scramble to get close to some panels that otherwise would be looking down upon us. Part way through our hike we’ll find a nice spot to have lunch and admire the surrounding scenery and Little Colorado River valley. Imagining what life may have been like for the past cultures that left their ‘signatures,’ used the river as a highway to trade and move about the vast spaces that make up the southern portion of the mighty Colorado Plateau. We’ll likely see some sort of wildlife whether it be an antelope or a herd, a falcon, owl or some other creature that’s etched out a living in the seemingly harsh, arid high desert.

I’ve lived in the SW for my whole life and started exploring rock art and Native American sites at a very young age. As a child I was even adamant about contacting the park service to report the destruction and theft of petroglyphs in Saguaro National Park. I majored in anthropology and worked as an Archaeologist in N AZ for a number of years. I was fortunate to be part of a discovery of one of America’s oldest rock art sites (a Glenn Canyon Linear style panel). Having lived in AZ for 34 years and the Flagstaff area for 12, I’ve spent almost all my free time hiking and exploring the area.

Waar je zult zijn

We'll explore the Little Colorado River drainage near Wupatki National Monument. The Little Colorado River was a very important travel corridor for Native Americans for thousands of years. The area has no official trials, is in a semi remote and beautiful area bordering the Navajo Reservation. This area is special because it contains a history of progression from before the advent of the bow& arrow all the way to the re-introduction of horses.

Meer tips

The Little Colorado River may contain mud or water, typically its dry but occasionally summer rains/snow melt from far away create a flow. In this rare case shoes that can get wet maybe a good idea.
