|Superman pictograph near Kanab, UT|
This morning we set out to find the illusive “superman cave”in the north fork of Hog Canyon, just north of Kanab. Last attempt it was getting dark and I didn’t want to be burning daylight, especially with 2 kids (one of the whining variety).
Today was our day — with super navigators Lisa and Darren along, we were destined to reach S-man’s lair.

Let’s just say that the trip getting TO the cave was a little itchy and bleedy. Lots of bushwhacking, screaming (from JJ, so take that for what it’s worth), scrambling.. but we made it — and IT.WAS.AWESOME! I think this might be one of my favorite places now. Here’s why — it is seriously so remote. I couldn’t even give directions if I tried. It’s like… go here, look for this, bushwhack. The end.

|I don’t even know..|
|You can see the scale of the amphitheater. It was very large w/ a lot of pottery and corn cobs|
|That rock that Harry is looking at is actually a piece of mud w/ rock.. used in foundations of houses/structures|

|Love this trio!|
It was another successful day. We found a much better route back to our xterra that did not involve as much bushwhacking (yay!) or bleeding.
I love living here! It’s always an adventure. Wow, we’re lucky!
