Sego Canyon Revisited

While on my misadventure, I returned to Green River, Utah early enough to make a quick trip out to Sego Canyon. It was a perfect time of the day to photograph rock art. And at least that way my misadventure wouldn't be a total loss. Thompson Springs is the turnoff for Sego Canyon and only about a 30 minute drive from Green River.

Misadventure

“A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.” 
― Lao Tzu

Sometimes you have to give in to defeat, listen to your intuition, turn around and go back. (In the hope that going back is even possible). Especially when you are traipsing across the desert all by your lonesome without a single soul in sight! 

All in all, it was still quite the adventure. Here are a few photos I took while on my misadventure.

Nine Mile Canyon - Take Three

Things I missed the first and second time through the canyon.

  • Binoculars are very helpful for viewing the rock art high up.

The Hostage Panel - Next to road at road level - About 9.4 Miles
About 10.4 Miles on the left side of Balanced Rock
I tried to look for the owl panel in Current Canyon, but I got halfway there (.31 Miles) and found a big boulder in the way. Since I had my dog with me and wouldn't be able to lift him over it, I turned around. I'll have to try it another day. This site is referenced in Chuck Zehnder's "Guide to Nine Mile Canyon."

This one made me go "hhhhhmmmm...."
About 9.4 Miles at eye level

Rasmussen's Cave - About 22.2 Miles
Just to the right of Rasmussen's Cave
