When I spent the weekend in Nevada before finishing my drive to Death Valley, I really thought that the Kohta Circus petroglyphs were going to be the highlight of my visit. I was wrong. Before leaving on Sunday, I stopped to find the Falling Man petroglyph. I had a lot of fun exploring this area. Not only were there petroglyphs to find everywhere I looked, but there was also colorful sandstone all over the place. It was like walking through a colorful maze searching for rock art around every corner! I spent more time in this area than I had anticipated and look forward to returning.
I’ve been looking for this rock art panel for over a year and finally managed to find it over the Thanksgiving weekend. It took me three separate trips to find it, so I guess the third time’s the charm! I find it interesting that the petroglyph on the right is placed right over a larger pictograph which makes it really stand out. The texture on the ceiling of this overhang is just amazing, and I managed to visit this site at the right time of the day since there was some nice reflected light bouncing around.
