Morning, night or afternoon you never know how the sun will treat images on stone when you finally get there.
South of Sego Springs and across the river — when you look back from the south bank of the Colorado (20 miles east of Moab), you see these square shouldered, robed spirits coming out of the valley away in the distance, below.
Seen them before? Well, maybe… actually, yes: in the Great Gallery in Horseshoe Canyon.
The left-most panel contains The Holy Ghost grouping of life size figures. The Holy Ghost himself is tall, straight robed, square shouldered. Like these forms below.
There are many theories about the Holy Ghost image. My theory is he came from here.
So, why didn’t the 2 Old Men in a Jeep get closer and take a decent picture? The trail was blocked off by a movie company from Hollywood, California. Their security guard did not speak English, French or Japanese. So we left and found a dude ranch, which took us in for lunch.
