Centennial Canyon, Jurassic & Scattered Bone Peaks

Postby Mtflyer » Sun May 07, 2006 6:58 pm

Met Sooz on Friday just off Hwy 395 and headed to Centennial Canyon
to check out some petroglyphs that I found there a month ago while
hunting for an aircraft crash site that's in the area. We also found a
lot of others along with a group of wild horses.
The next morning we met Cori (Snow Nymph) for a hike to Jurassic
and Scattered Bone Peaks. Fun weekend, photos at

Nice pictures Joe - I really like the petroglyph pictures. How warm was it out there?

Beautiful area, great weather and a fun day of hiking! Thanks for coming up with the idea, Sooz!

WingDing, temps were at 70 deg when I checked mid day. I kept my long sleeved shirt on for sun protection, but Sooz had hers on and off. So much nicer than the previous week!

Mtflyer and Trailtrekkers description of their hike on Friday sounded like something I had to do, so Joe gave me his map and one of the road leading to it. Turns out I had been here in the early 90s.

Plan was to hike to the petroglyphs, then bag 2 peaks by yesterdays hike. I took the wrong canyon, had little info on this hike, but figured out what I did and found the petroglyphs, 15 wild horses, 2 colts and a donkey (looked like they adopted it), and ran into 2 snakes on the way. Awesome hike!
