The trip was great, weather was +3 degrees Celcius and the sun was shining. The walk was quite easy but because you walk up a creek canyon the trip is quite worthwhile! The pictographs (which are reported to be 500-1000+ years old) are very neat to see! They are found on the left just before the waterfalls.
Actually best in the winter when the canyon floor is a continuous sheet of ice (best to wear Kahtoolas or some additional traction on your boots). One of the pictographs is thought to be Anasazi - just before you turn to see the ice climbers at the end of the canyon look up to the left. Winter is also a great time to book a guided trip into the Rat's Nest Cave, also on Grotto Mt.
