Dark Angel Petroglyphs

of course it wasn't until after we came home from our first trip to the Dark Angel that we found out there were petroglyphs hiding somewhere in the area. I'm not joking, 20 minutes after putting the pictures up on Facebook my friend Laura said she remembered a bunch in the area 'somewhere.'  obviously we had to go .. what a shock - we started our hike early enough to watch the sun rise on the red rocks through out the park. even though I've seen our shadows stretch into oblivion several times; it's always amazing to see. snow was everywhere; there was even a ton of ice on certain parts of the hike. we were unbelievably glad we had our walking sticks with us and may have expressed that to each other 3 or 4 times as we watched other folks sliding down icy hills and falling on their faces.  their cold faces.

I’m Danielle. I’m a mom, I’m 40. My legs are short and I’m out of shape lol but I like to go all the places and do all the things. haha I’m pretty enthusiastic about being out in nature. I live in Moab, Utah - USA, with my 1 husband, 2 kids, 2 dogs and more cats than I am woman enough to admit in public. We love to be outside, hiking, exploring, chasing sunshine and doing the learning, when possible. My family is my entire world wrapped up in four awesome humans and way too many rescue fur babies .. these are our adventures.
