    Count me in for the day of work on April 23rd. I’ll be staying in the park for a couple of days before and after.

    Hello there–not finding a contact form so posting here–we visited Cottonwood Canyon back in May and it was beautiful. While eating lunch beside the river and examining the opposite side of the canyon with binoculars we spotted a painted advertisement, I believe for insurance. Looked early 20th C or older. It was too far away to get a photo with my phone.

    Can’t find any photos or mention of it on your site or elsewhere on the web. Perhaps you could do a post about it? It’s so high up on a cliff and far enough from the road that I don’t imagine anyone’s going to vandalize it.
