This week, I got to work on the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation with Tom, one of my coworkers. Tom mentioned that one of the Tribal Technicians (we're not supposed to do any work on tribal lands without one) said that there were some petroglyphs in the area. Now I've found "petroglyphs" on tribal lands before, but this is the real deal. We started surveying the proposed access road and I walked straight to the petroglyph it was awesome.Iron like a lion in Zion,


P.S. There were fossils a plenty on this survey too.

Sign Editing

A little over a year ago, I got the job I have now. On my first day, I went and surveyed a few well pads on Archee Bench. To get to Archee Bench, you have to go through Bitter Creek. The road through Bitter Creek is terrible and the big semis out in the gas field have a hard time navigating it. It's so bad that someone put up this sign.One of the big oil and gas companies is paying to have this road widened and upgraded. So I finally got another chance to go to Bitter Creek because we're surveying the area for fossil resources. Well, someone decided to "edit" the sign.Close but no cigar,
