Yep, Buckskin Gulch, and very close to the Wire Pass Trailhead at that.

There are some more written about, but aren't always visible due to conditions, and some are just require some rock scrambling to get higher.

I don't get out there much now with a couple kids, but my old man is retired and spends extended treks out there every couple years. One year he ran off for six weeks out there. So he's done every trail in Zion, crossed GC multiple times, even did a trip down the entire Colorado River through GC. He's old school and refuses to pay Antelope Canyon when he can hit BLM properties, so he's done a lot in Buckskin, including a couple trips all the way through, linking with Paria and spending the night. One day we'll score a permit for the Wave; the trail to that curls off Wire Pass area.

I was last out there in 2012 for a two-week swing through the southwest; our latest few father/son adventures went further north into Banff/Jasper Canada and Montana's parks. But I need to get back out to the southwest and catch more time in and around Monument Valley and Arches, especially some of the backcountry sites.

We didn't view the petroglyphs in Zion on our trip, but I know my old man has gone rock art hunting in a few different parks and had some good finds.
