Lake Lahontan Petroglyphs

Lake Lahontan Petroglyphs

Click the red hotspots to navigate through the five different VR panoramas. The white calcium carbonate deposits partially coating some of the rocks is evidence that the level of prehistoric Lake Lahontan was once high above the location of the petroglyphs. Tufa deposits result from precipitation of calcium-bearing spring water in an alkaline lake rich in carbonates.

    Beautiful. Our family spent a lot of time in this area during the 1950’s, and I have fond memories of looking for petroglyphs. It’s really fun to be able to scan around the glyphs in the photo.
