Saturday was a nearly perfect day for a hike. I checked out the Dragonfly and Blue-Eyed Princess pictograph panels, the former of which is one of the best I’ve ever seen! The Dragonfly panel sits on an angled wall at the back of an alcove, and to the left in a deeper part of the alcove are a few slab-lined granaries held together with mud. There is also quite a bit of lithic scatter and broken pottery of all sorts lying on the ground in and around the alcove.
The details in the Dragonfly panel are tiny and several of the figures are quite different from the many I’ve seen nearby.
The Blue-Eyed Princess panel, which by itself is interesting and worth visiting, pales in comparison to Dragonfly. The main figure and namesake of the panel has two differently-colored eyes, but I couldn’t tell whether they were actually blue. The surfaces behind the two largest figures had been abraded smooth before painting, and there were several other such spots that had been prepared but never painted. If the artist had followed through on his or her plans to paint all of the prepared areas, this would have been one amazing panel.
