Petroglyphs in Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada

Petroglyphs | Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada

Some petroglyphs in Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada may be found at the top of the Atlatl Rock staircase (found next to Arch Rock,shortly beyond the West entrance to the park), but most are found on the Mouses Tank Trail (found on White Domes Road shortly after the visitor center). The petroglyphs on Mouse’s Tank Trail comprise the majority of the slides on this page. I know of no more complete study of the Valley of Fire Petroglyphs than the 74-page Master of Arts Degree in Archaeology thesis “Valley of Fire Petroglyphs: A New Perspective On An Old Idea” by Eric Pacl. There’s a link to download the entire thesis in this article. Click image or title above for more…
