Western Nevada and Black Rock Desert

Rattlesnake Canyon Petroglyphs

This is a collection of two sites that are very close together in a remote corner of western Nevada. They are medium-sized sites with a variety of Western Desert Archaic petroglyph designs. We have visited the site a few times over the years.

The site also has a 1909 inscription by Roy Hunter. The Hunter name is more often tied to the Inyo Mountains where Hunter Mountain is located.
