After a quiet Christmas morning we joined about 75 other Snowbirds for a potluck Christmas dinner. On boxing day Lori did some laundry and I went to the gym with the rest of the day spent around the Park walking Charli and doing some biking.
On the 27th we decided to try to find the proper trailhead for the Hieroglyphics Trail. This time met with more success and it turns out it is only a short drive from our Park.
The look down over the town of Gold Canyon.
The basalt rock etchings were mistaken by early European settlers for Egyptian hieroglyphs, hence the erroneous name. These petroglyphs were created by the Hohokam People, a civilization that thrived in central and southern Arizona from 500 - 1450 AD.
We decided a return trip during the week and after school was back in session would leave us more time to explore.
