Picture Canyon, Baca Co., Colorado

During my trip I made a stop at Picture Canyon in southeast Colorado. I didn't know the area very well so I just hiked a little ways, but I did get to see some rock art. I'm not sure of the history of these paintings/carvings. I haven't been able to find much information on them. I was disgusted by the amount of graffiti. It made my stomach turn to think of how oblivious to history and art a person would have to be to carve their initials into rock art. Uggh!

I missed quite a few sites because they were further back in the canyon. I just wasn't sure of where to go. I hope to go back to explore more.
