Desert Critters and Stuff

Desert Critters in the Southwest

The Southwest, including Southern Nevada, has a significant amount of Native American Petroglyph / Rock Art Sites. Our web site will concentrate on the rock art of Southern Nevada which extends back over 1500 years, and was typically created by either the Paiute, Shoshone, Chemehuevi, or the Anasazi people.

 

Preservation through Education

 

We believe that rock art on public lands does not - and should not - belong to just a few select people or groups.  However, due to the fragile nature of many rock art sites, it is not realistic to have a large number of people visiting most of them. What we are attempting to do with our website is to provide visual access where those with the interest or the curiosity can go to see and appreciate a small piece of Native American history. Our beliefs are that by educating people to the historical significance of the rock art, people will be more inclined to respect, and preserve, the sites for the enjoyment of everyone for a long, long time.

Desert Critters and Stuff

 

Some of the critters that I have been lucky enough to see since I have been working this web site are pictured here in “Desert Critters”. Most of the time I can’t get close enough to them to take a picture, so like the hunter or fisherman, those are the ones that “got away”. There are a few pictures of wild horses and burros which I feel very fortunate to have seen. As many of you know the wild horses and burros are being removed from southern Nevada for “their own well-being” by our local BLM. And many have died. This ends my nastiness for now.
