Southern Nevada and Tonopah Basin

Cane Man Petroglyphs

I met up with Dan, Bill, and Barbara in 2009 to check out some petroglyphs in western Nevada. This is a very interesting site near an ancient lakebed.

The petroglyphs on one rock are known as "Cane Man" and are unique and seems quite out of place with the rest of the Great Basin styles I’ve seen. I would be happy to hear your thoughts on this rock. We have since returned a few times to this site and found more petroglyphs hidden in these hills. I have added those photos here.
