Grimes Point Recreation Area

5/24/2014 Grimes Point Recreation Area (BLM). We had originally identified this as something to do if we got into town early; that wasn’t the case, but since it was right on our path we stopped there anyway. Although touted as one of the largest petroglyph sites in the country, we both thought we had seen better elsewhere. Still, we did spot plenty of the rock etchings, and enjoyed walking the interpretive trail for a while on a nice day.

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

11/4/2002 Headed out to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area [BLM]. Hit the visitor center and nature exhibits, then took the loop road around the beautiful red canyon area against the white sandstone and deep blue sky (weather gorgeous!). Took a short hike to the petroglyphs.
