Sheik's Canyon, Green Mask:  One of the most interesting petroglyphs in terms of color.  It is fairly high up on the wall so maybe a ladder was used.  It is just a short walk into Sheik's Canyon from Grand Gulch.  I seem to recall having read that the green color is due to copper??

It was a pleasant surprise to see a canyon named after me  ;-)

Please do not touch the petroglyphs you find along the way.  Oils from your skin will permanently damage them.  Also you will erode the colors much faster than nature ever will!  Just take some pictures.  Same goes for the ruins.
