After class yesterday, I decided on a whim to go back up to Garden Canyon on Ft Huachuca. The road up Garden Canyon itself has been closed due to maintenance, and the last time we were up there with the Sierra Vista Offroad group, they had some earth moving equipment up there. Yesterday, the gate was open and so I took the drive up. It was beatiful. There were areas still covered with a good amount of snow, and other areas where the snow was melting off. There was a good bit of mud in the melting areas. I drove up, stopped at the Petroglyph site and took some pictures. The petroglypths are fenced off to prevent grafitti and vandalism, but you can still see them pretty well. There are glyphs from two different time periods from what I have read. First the Paleo Indians around the 14th century, and then later the Apaches starting around the 1700s. From what I have read, some of the pictographs are even older than those of the Paleos of the 1300s.
Garden Canyon Road goes about 4 miles or so up the through the canyon and then there is a turnaround area. There are some trails that branch off here, that I will have to explore on another day.
Enjoy the pictures.
