Grapevine Canyon, Laughlin, Nev.

Great Travel Moment
Near Grapevine Canyon just West of Laughlin, Nev. is a site very few people are aware is there. Only the locals know about its stark beauty. There are real Petroglyphs on many of the rocks, as you go up into the canyon you can see the writings on the rocks. It is estimated that the writings were put there possibly by some of the local tribes of Native Americans. There were several clans of the Anasazi natives. At one point the writings are believed to be aproximately 65 feet below the surface of the ground. This picture is taken from up near the spring that runs year round, and looking East down the flood plain. During the summer the desert can get to 130 degrees farenheit, but the spring will still produce water. As a Histroy buff, I enjoy learning about the locals before the White Man came to this area.
