Rock Art Field Trip  -- May 21, 2016
Bob Rushforth and Bob Tipton will be in LaJunta, CO on May 21 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, to sign up or by phone, 720.289.9033 if you have any questions. Bob Tipton
