This weekend, Kathy and I returned to the Lower Pecos Region of Texas to visit Seminole Canyon State Park to see more pre-Indian shelter settlements and pictographs in Presa Canyon.

We had a great day with our great guides, Lance and Susan. All of the other nine people who had booked cancelled, so we had the tour to ourselves. It was a full day of hiking, bouldering and bushwacking down Seminole Canyon, and then up Presa Canyon to the pre-Indian Rock Art sites. It started off cool and foggy but the sun burned through and we had a beautiful clear day.

The Rock Art was stunning, mystical but so full of meaning. Very well preserved in great detail in Black Cave, but more indistinct and blurred in some of the other sites more prone to erosion and spawling of the limestone.

All of our pictures are here

Previously, we have enjoyed seeing the rock art in Fate Bell Shelter in Seminole Canyon in 2011, and more recently in December 2019, visiting Bonfire Shelter and Eagle Cave.

We plan to return to see the White Shaman Shelter in March.
