We Hiked Down This Canyon to the Site

We drove out of Alpine and the cool weather to Seminole Canyon State Park that is about 45 miles west of Del Rio and near the Pecos and Rio Grande Rivers on Lake Amistad. This was our first camping trip to a Texas State Park and we wanted to see how well we would fit. Well--we fit very nicely into a nice back-in spot with good water and electricity. The 30 amp power could not keep up with the 97 degree heat since there is no shade but after the sun set, we managed to cool off the RV.

We came to this park to take the White Shaman guided hike the next day and we were not disappointed. The White Shaman site is a site with ancient rock art that is not accessible by the public but only on guided hikes. The hike was strenous because we had to go up and down some really steep steps and rock faces. Some the hiking trail had chains to hold on to and they really helped.

At the site we got to closely examine the rock art and listen to how it was made by our excellent guide-Don. You can explore more of the Rock Art of the Lower Pecos on the internet and find out about guided tours to the sites.

The White Shaman site is only one mile from Seminole Canyon State Park and near the US Highway 90 bridge over the Pecos River. It was a great hike and we recommend it for our friends.
