Come join us in enjoying, valuing and reserving Colorado Rock Art.
Rock Art Field Trip - May 23, 2015
Bob Rushforth and Bob Tipton will be in LaJunta on May 23 and plan to do some exploration in the Hicklin Springs rock art site. There’s lots of cool petroglyphs and some pictographs (if we can find them. If you would like to join us, you’re more than welcome. When we’re finished, you’ll be free to visit other sites of interest on your own.
We will meet at the Walmart on the west end of LaJunta at 10 in the morning and, if you like, you can make carpool arrangements among yourselves. The site is accessible by car if you’re really careful, but a pickup or SUV would be better. You’ll want to bring a lunch or snacks. Boots and gaiters are recommended as there are snakes and poison ivy in the area. Other places of interest in the area are Vogel Canyon, Picture Canyon, Carrizo Canyon, Bent’s Fort and Boggsville. Not to be missed are the ribs at Boss Hog’s in LaJunta.
We are making 16 slots available. Preference will be given to CRAA members. Membership forms are available on the CRAA website. Please contact me by email, firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up or by phone, 720.289.9033 if you have any questions.
CRAA was organized in 2003 at the Pueblo Archaeology Conference. We are a section of the Colorado Archaeological Society.
Our mission is to enjoy, preserve and educate the public about our archaeological heritage of rock art.
• We organize field trips around the state each year. These are open to all current members.
• We host an annual symposium in different parts of the state each year where we bring together professional and amateur archaeologists to discuss the latest and most important issues in enjoying, understanding and preserving rock art in Colorado.
• We organize several rock art recording and monitoring opportunities each year.
• We also are establishing an archive of rock art materials at CSU in Ft Collins.
If you have any historical information about CRAA we would love to have it for the CRAA archives located in Ft Collins, CO.
