July 20 - Pictographs & Sego Ghost Town
These are the San Rafael Swell
pictographs, located in a canyon just a mile north of Interstate 70 (a
marked dirt track with no true exit ramp; 2 miles west of exit 147). At
some point, someone had outlined some of the pictographs in chalk.
Friday afternoon, I visited the ghost town of Sego, and then
explored the road up into the hills to the north. These two buildings
(the store and boarding house) are the majority of what is now left of
On the way to Sego, I passed through the tiny town of Thompsons Springs, which had a correspondingly tiny (pink) post office.
