The whole idea behind this trip in the desert was to find this Waterglyph (see photo below). We did, but along the way we also found a very challenging trail up onto this mesa and some great scenery. Bud Sanders got us interested in this "mysterious" type of petroglyph, so off we went.
Some people might find this quite a challenge if you follow our GPX track up the mesa from Short Creek / Canaan Wash. Coming in from Colorado City on the other hand is longer but is a much easier run. See the video / slidehow below. There is also a topography map below. Link at the bottom of the page for more info on these "Waterglyphs".
