We first visited this site in 1998. We stopped by a few times since then but didn’t photograph the site again until 2009 when I wanted to get better photos than my earlier visits. This is an interesting (and large) site and worth the visit.

Most of the designs here are abstract. I wonder if they are from the Desert Archaic culture.
The lava flows make a natural tank here that would have held rainwater for a long period of time. A vital resource in an area without many springs.

“A Guide to Rock Art Sites: Southern California and Southern Nevada” provides a great guide to the site.
