Petroglyph Butte

Nye County

I don't pretend to know very much about glyphs. These are definitely some of the best that I have seen. It will require hiking around through the rocks to find them. We spent quite a bit of time hiking around and I'm sure that we still missed some. I'm not going to disclose any information on where they are. Those that are dedicated to seeing the history will find them. There is one really nice glyph that stands out. It shows a traditional Native American lodging. Next to it is a glyph of a settler's home. Complete with windows, door and a chimney with smoke coming out. While still not pretending to be an expert on glyphs, I would have to guess that this represented the stage station that had been built not too far from here in the late 1800's.
