Our friends at Southern Nevada Rock Art Association have an upcoming talk focusing on oriented boulder of Sloan Canyon NCA, Orientated Boulders in Sloan Canyon: The Well-Known and the Newly Discovered.
Recently recognized oriented boulders, rock more massive than one person might manipulate, have been found to exist in the Sloan Canyon NCA and Wilderness.
A well known site of these oriented boulders will be examined with respect to evidence of Native Americans, miners, ranchers, settlers and explorers, and a newly rediscovered site will be introduced, including evidence of possible origin and consideration of alignment.
Gordon Hamilton is the President of SNRAA and a Nevada Site Steward. Paul Renois is a Site Steward Regional Coordinator. Doug Rorer is a Nevada Site Steward. All three are members of the Nevada Rock Art Foundation and have helped record multiple rock art sites for the Department of the Interior and the State of Nevada.
SNRAA's monthly meeting is Monday, August 24, 6:30am at the REI Boca (710 S. Rampart Blvd.)
