Tracks in the rock

Tracks of ancient creatures are not all that uncommon in the sandstone of the Colorado Plateau but I was fully grown, with a family, before I saw my first set outside of Moab, Utah along the Colorado River. Since then, many, many more sites have been discovered. These tracks appear in reverse, they stick up instead of down into the former mud. These are the kinds of things I am always looking for when I go out into the canyons and hills of the Plateau.
