There’s a mystery to be solved in the Great Basin Desert.

The clues date back thousands of years and are found in the form of petroglyphs and pictographs — rock art left by people living on the shores of Lake Lahontan, an ancient lake that once covered portions of northwest Nevada, northeast California and southern Oregon.

Rock art can be found throughout Nevada, but a good place to start your exploration is seven miles east of Fallon at Grimes Point Archaeological Area and at nearby Hidden Cave.
