Travel back in time 7000 years to the Archaic period by exploring the Shavano Valley Rock Art Site at the Ute History Museum in Montrose on Saturday, June 8. This site, considered the premier rock art site of the Uncompaghre Plateau and Valley area, has an incredible 42 acres of fantastically preserved Ute petroglyphs. It also has an ample concentration of artifacts that were once used for stone tool manufacturing. After visiting the site participants will learn about the true Colorado natives at the Ute Museum.
This field trip is scheduled to leave Salida at 7:00 am and meet at the Ute Museum in Montrose at 9:00 am. From there, attendees will travel the Shavano Valley Rock Art Site for a 1.5 mile hike at 9:30 am. At 12:30 pm participants will arrive back at the Museum for lunch before the guided museum tour from 1-2 pm. Participants will arrive back in Salida by 4 pm.
