Photographer's Note

These Indian petroglyphs are found in The Valley of Fire State Park near the Atlatl Rock. There is a staircase one climbs to reach them and there are quite a few on this rock.
The Valley of Fire state park is about 50 miles northeast of Las Vegas in the Mojave Desert. According to Andrew Alden, "The park displays red sandstones exposed beneath the Sevier fold-thrust belt, where older rocks of Cambrian age (about 500 million years old) were pushed sideways on a thrust fault over younger rocks (Jurassic, about 160 million years old) of the Aztec Sandstone."(www.about.com/geology.com)
I loved this park and want to go back again because there is so much to see there. there is also a very nice campground if you like that kind of travel.
