I had to share this. It’s a genuine petroglyph, carved into Navajo Sandstone in Dry Fork Canyon, Utah. We visited the site on a tour with the Museum of the West last year. There are dozens of these wonderful Barrier Canyon era figures in the area. They were done in the Archaic Period and are very old.
Somebody bought a copy of this postcard today. Highway 141 is an amazing drive. It starts not far from Grand Junction and travels through spectacular canyons to Gateway, and then beyond, to Nucla, Naturita, and points south.
The photo on the card was taken at Gateway. A pioneer ranch cabin sits beside the curving road with a magnificent butte, The Palisade, looming in the distance.
The Gateway Canyons Resort is located near this spot. The resort includes two fantastic restaurants as well as facilities for events, getaways, and all-season adventures. If you love automotive history, don’t miss one of the best auto museums anywhere. It is on the property.
