For quite a while I’ve had a vague notion of where Unexpected Panel (also referred to by some as the “New Panel”) lie, and I finally took the time to find it. It easily ranks among the best rock art I’ve seen. Perhaps my favorite thing about its relatively recent discovery is knowing that there may be more great stuff out there to be discovered.
Overview of Unexpected Panel
I could barely make out some washed-out pigment so I took a photo (original, left), and DStretch (right) really brought out some details

More DStretch magic. It really brought out the circles at the bottom and the wavy line in the center.
Uphill and behind the rock art panel is this gap between boulders. One can hunch over and walk inside.
Going between the boulders leads one here. I’d guess this was a nice shelter once. The hole on the right spits you back out near the rock art.
