|There they go up the hill|

|And they are gone|

Then we got back int he truck and headed down the Rainbow Vista Road again.
|What a view it is!|
Then we stopped at the Visitor Center and took in the exhibits and a short video about the park. Wouldn't you know the Gift Shop was closed today for inventory but since we don't have to check out until 2 PM, we decided we would stop in tomorrow before we leave.
|We didn't see this guy!|
|White Tailed Antelope Ground Squirrel|
When we left the Visitor Center, we took the Scenic Loop Road which starts out paved but turns into poorly maintained and very bumpy gravel.
Another short road takes you into another small canyon. The Civilian Conservation Corps built these cabins in the 20's. I don't think anyone uses them now.
|The view from the cabins|
|Someone is coming to visit me!|
|They all have a fire place and that is about all|
|Looks like a good place for some critter to live|
There isn't much going on here. You can see how far the water is down on the cliffs in the background.
Then we headed back to the park as we wanted to see the petroglyphs before it got dark.
There isn't too much that we can figure out from these ancient stories but the Big Horns are shown quite a bit in their pictures. They were probably an important part of their diet.
|These were interesting and we wondered what lived in them!|
