Moore Cutoff Road

June 23, 2008 at 6:00 pm (petroglyphs)

Yeah, I’m back with another scenic drive in central Utah and more petroglpyphs! It’s a rather addictive hobby. This drive starts at I-70 and winds its way northwest to Utah Highway 10. The drive along I-70 to access this road was breathtaking, to say the least. I don’t how many of you know this, but this stretch of I-70 is considered the most sparse as far as services go. It’s also very beautiful and it’s a good 30-40 miles of no services and beautiful views until you reach Green River, Utah. There are a few view areas though. Here’s one of them.

While driving the Moore Cutoff Road, this is an example of the scenery.

Along the road, there’s a large boulder with some petroglyphs on it.

Here’s a closeup.

There’s also a panel of a snake that is ten feet long.

A couple of other images were there too.

See the image in the far right? I nicknamed him lollipop man.

And this could be a deer, were it not for the long tail.

Anybody have any ideas of what it might be?

Wonderful Weekend

September 3, 2007 at 4:16 am (knitting, national parks, petroglyphs, plays, travels)

We had a great weekend. DH and I went to the Utah Shakespearean Festival  to see Twelfth Night.  It was very funny and a quality production as I have come to expect at the festival.   We stopped to take in some breathtaking sights at Cedar Breaks National Monument.

We took a detour on the way home to see some petroglyphs at  Parowan Gap.  I am always amazed to look at these pictures carved into the rock and think that they are thousands of years old!

Can you find the figure that looks like Mickey Mouse in this next picture?

And I finished sock #2 of my first pair of socks that really fit my feet! 🙂 I call them my “Sugary Sherbet” socks.
