Canyonlands is a little far from ABDSP but I know you guys are into rock art. Horseshoe Canyon AKA Barrier Canyon has four spectacular sites containing the best examples of "Barrier Canyon Style" rock art dating from 2000 BCE to 500 CE. The trailhead is at the end of a dirt road 32 miles from the highway. It's a 6.5 mile hike with a 750ft descent into the canyon. Here's a few of the amazing panels and their DSTRETCHED enhancements. Enjoy. Tom

With DSTRETCH, you can see a bunch of sheep appear on this figure's chest.

All very cool.....

I like hidden sheep on the chest picto. DStretch is pretty cool, glad you are using it.

Are any of those photos stitched panoramas or are they just wide angle distance shots? I like how they look.

Yeah dstretching everything is kinda fun and every once in a while something unexpected pops out. Always appreciative of you sharing the link. The panels are stitched together in photoshop. Tom

That's amazing stuff. Especially the hidden sheep that dstretch brings out. I bet the area isn't too crowded, given the distance from the nearest paved road.

When we looked through the trailhead register which was only the month of July, we saw only 2-3 people per day. We saw no one the entire hike but it was about 90 degrees by noon, maybe a factor! Tom
