The Southwest, including Southern Nevada, has a significant amount of Native American Petroglyph / Rock Art Sites. Our web site will concentrate on the rock art of Southern Nevada which extends back over 1500 years, and was typically created by either the Paiute, Shoshone, Chemehuevi, or the Anasazi people.

 

Preservation through Education

 

We believe that rock art on public lands does not - and should not - belong to just a few select people or groups.  However, due to the fragile nature of many rock art sites, it is not realistic to have a large number of people visiting most of them. What we are attempting to do with our website is to provide visual access where those with the interest or the curiosity can go to see and appreciate a small piece of Native American history. Our beliefs are that by educating people to the historical significance of the rock art, people will be more inclined to respect, and preserve, the sites for the enjoyment of everyone for a long, long time.

Rachel Nevada

 

If you just happen to be in the area and you are on the Extraterrestrial Highway in central Nevada, you have to drop in and visit the Little A'Le'Inn in Rachel, Nevada, if for no other reason than to say, "Been there, done that". It's also kind of fun and the food's pretty good - we especially liked their famous "Alien Burger". If you are a UFO or Area 51 aficionado, then it's a must-see as they have a variety of souvenirs and other items related to the area.
