Head Of Sinbad
Sinbad who? Which landmark is actually his head? We never knew. It's a big area flanked by the San Rafael Reef, and we had some exploring to do after seeing Swasey's Cabin at the end of Eagle Canyon. Though the Head of Sinbad trail continued south for quite a distance before it met the Hidden Splendor trail, we were only going to do the northern part.
We turned left to head north. We took a spur to find the Lone Warrior Pictograph, driving around the rock formation there. We looked for a while but couldn't find it. All we saw was a motorhome and lots of dirt bikes and ATVs. When we had a chance to look at more maps after getting back home, we realized that the pictograph was where the motorhome was. Oh well! We marked it for next time.
We cruised up to the underpass, and we still couldn't believe how well they blended in. You couldn't see them from the highway unless you knew to look for trails going under the highway. We honked when we went under the road, of course.
Walt and Monica had been to the area before, and we skipped the Dutchman Arch this time. We did go up to the two other pictographs, though. They were easy to find along the southern wall of Locomotive Point. We took pictures and enjoyed getting out to stretch our legs.
Eventually, we headed back under the highway using the same tunnel, but this time we headed southeast. This brought us out to the actual trailhead as we'd done the trail in reverse. It was a nice section of trail in Sinbad Country. We took the easy road out to check out Buckhorn Draw Road.
