A beautiful petroglyph somewhere in the Mojave Desert during
a February 2014 Desert Survivors backpack. Due to the recent
theft and desecration of ancient American rock-art sites,
anthropologists and public land managers no longer give out their
locations. Desert Survivors trip leaders and members know of
hundreds of places where these treasures can be found. Desert Survivors sponsors trips to
beautiful and intriguing places in the American deserts including archeological sites. Become a member and join us on our wilderness adventures. Photo: A.H. Cominos.
