We came around one final bend in Horseshoe Canyon and there it was. The Great Gallery. This group of pictographs is the largest grouping known in North America. They are thought to be 2,000 to 8,000 years old and no one knows what they were for or what they mean. From a distance, it appeared that they were created at ground level and then the canyon floor eroded away. Yes, these images are VERY old.
For those of us intrested in ancient americans and their art, this is our "Sistine Chapel". I'd waited long to make it here and am grateful to have a companion who would make the journey with me. Sharon had wished on the falling star she's seen at Bryce that we'd make it in here this time. We both got her wish. Thanks Honey ;^)
