Going Wild V

 Desert Survival Hint:

"Stay out of there.  Don't go. Stay home and read a good book.  The Great American Desert is an awful place.  People get hurt, get sick, get lost out there.  Even if you do survive, which is uncertain, you'll have a miserable time.  The desert is for Movies and God-intoxicated (or just intoxicated ) mystics, not for family recreation"

The infamous Elick Petroglyphs are studied by this delighted backpacker.  The expedition nearly missed this extraordinary landmark altogether, but luckily they turned around in the nick of time.
