Tucked on a lofty perch above Kane Creek, the Moab Maiden is one of those rock art panels I would love to know the artist's inspiration and intentions. Was this, as has been named in modern times, a maiden? Was the artist a shunned lover? Or perhaps this was an artistic gift while courting? Perhaps mere doodling? The story is lost in time!
The panel is an interesting one. With a couple of old pit houses, a granary, and a second small panel, this outing is an easy way to spend a few hours. I recommend packing a lunch and picnicking at the Moab Maiden panel proper. It has stunning, sunny views that make for a perfect place to enjoy a lunch, panel, and views.
