ROCK ART RECORDING OPPORTUNITIES IN WESTERN COLORADO:
Long-time friend, and Colorado Rock Art Association Board member, Carol Patterson has some possible rock art recording projects in Western Colorado for which she is seeking volunteers. If you think that you might be interested and might be in a position to help with any of these contact her. Who knows, your help might be just the added boost that gets these projects off the ground? And, if you do get involved, send me the material for consideration for posting on http://rockartblog.blogspot.com.
1. Paradox Valley with the BLM. This project needs help finishing the site forms and drawings for at least 5 sites with large panels. March to May. Camping or motels in Naturita which is not far away.

2. Blue Creek, Ute warrior scratched glyphs on BLM land. Possibly mid-May. Lodging is probably camping at an abandoned ranch near the site.
3. Shavano needs more rock art panels recorded within the boundaries of the new acquisition by the Archaeology Conservancy. It is only 5 miles from town or camping on-site might be arranged. April -May should be good weather. This might be organized as a field school with possible lodging at Carol's home in Montrose.
Call Carol if you are interested in working with, and learning from, a highly experienced professional and a real rock art enthusiast.
