Description: There is almost nothing written about this area. The Howard Hughes Corp., which owns the land packed with ancient Indian sites on the edge of the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, has set aside 75 acres that contain petroglyphs and other cultural resources and 200 acres along dry washes. In addition to petroglyphs, there are also ancient shelters, roasting pits used by ancient Indians for cooking and pottery shards, some dating back 1,500 years. Over the past several years there have been numerous instances of damage to the petroglyphs and the area.
