      Barron (“Bear”) and his friends have been making trips into the Largo Canyon complex in New Mexico, an area referred to as Diñetah by the Navajo. The area probably has over 200 pueblitos and rock art panels that represent Basketmaker to Pueblo–Navajo eras and the Present and Historical periods. For Bear, interest in this area started with a field trip during the ARARA meeting in Farmington, New Mexico, several years ago.

    Haley is a retired California community college instructor where he taught biological and marine sciences. He now resides in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, with his wife Ruth. On trips with his dad, he picked up an interest in rock art. Bear is a past member of SNRAA and presently a member of ARARA and URARA. For a period of twelve years he has worked as a volunteer recording rock art for NRAF in Nevada and BLM in both Nevada and New Mexico. Bear was chairman of the Cultural Resource Committee at Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area. He also was a docent and board member for Chimney Rock National Monument in Colorado for two years.
