Sloan Canyon - Site Petroglyph Photos

Though relatively little is known about this area, the Sloan Canyon Petroglyph Site is one of the most significant cultural resources in Southern Nevada. Archeologists believe its 318 recorded rock art panels with approximately 1,200 individual petroglyphs were created by native cultures from the Archaic to the historic era. Experts believe the earliest of these were made by ancestral Puebloans in the Archaic period, but other tribes may have continued to add petroglyphs in later years. Archeological evidence suggests resources within Sloan Canyon may have been used as long ago as 7,000 years. For more information on Sloan Canyon, click the following link ... Sloan Canyon National Conservation AreaThe 50 plus pictures below are a representational selection of what I feel were some of the more interesting examples of the rock art I've seen at Sloan Canyon.
