 SEASONS

 

Standing Cow Ruin is located in Canyon del Muerte just past the Narbona panel. One dwelling there is still in use and often occupied in the summer by a Navajo medicine man. The pictograph above the ruins was done by an unknown Navajo artist (perhaps Dibe Yazhi "Little Sheep").

The light in late afternoon from fall until spring will put this ruins and nearby pictographs in the deep shade where they are best photographed.
