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.

This amazing panel of petroglyphs has been on my radar for quite some time, but since I rarely make it down to Nevada they had to wait. That’s why I made it a point to find them last weekend as I drove through Nevada on my way to Death Valley. The side trip was well worth it.

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.
