Outdoor Utah Fall

Blind squirrel

As the saying goes even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in awhile. Hiding in plain sight this prehistoric pictograph looked out of place amongst ski runs and million dollar log homes. Local experts confirmed this undocumented bison and anthropomorph rock painting was probably done by the Fremont people who lived and foraged in the Utah area over a 1000 years ago.

Deer Valley in the Park City Utah area lives up to its name. Gambel or scrub oak cover the hillsides providing acorns and good cover for mule deer like this big ten pointer.
