Lower Half Creek Falls
(Near Escalante, Utah)
The artist may have been from the Anasazi or possibly a culture that we’ve never heard of.
They’re about ten feet tall, about a mile away from a 120 foot waterfall, which may or may not have been a waterfall of the same dimensions 1,000 years ago.
Or they’re pictures of ancient aliens?
The fact that they are holding hands may mean something profound, but humans hold hands for so many reasons, dealing with things specific to culture.
Walking the road less traveled offers the opportunity to speculate all on your own without noise from outside. Maybe it is precisely what you think that it is.
The falls and the pool of water below are an example of an oasis in an otherwise parched land. No trees, or bushes in this place.
Just rock and water, and the occasional deer or desert bighorn sheep drifting by for a cool drink. The canyon does have some vegetation but it’s in the middle of a desert…ok, it’s a recreation area now.
Is the land haunted by the presence of spirits from roaming, restless shamans who resent the careless foot prints of belching tourists? Or are their dry bones just rendered to dust?
