Desert Photos: Anasazi X Games

If you think the Winter X Games are a relatively new phenomenon, then think again. Peter Walker captured this photo of an inverted ski boot (and ski) while wandering the canyon country in advance of our upcoming Arches & Canyonlands hiking tour. Considering the age of this particular petroglyph, it appears that the ancient pueblo people of the Colorado Plateau were hucking themselves upside down long before any of the Freeskiing champions of recent fame.

The inverted ski boot kind of makes you wonder, too, about the circular image on the right. Are those spectacle-shaped circles really just ski goggles?

You can find this ancient image of an inverted air on the Wolfman Panel of Butler Wash. The location is southeast Utah, home to our Arches & Canyonlands hiking tour. Gus Kenworthy, eat your heart out!
