The Sloan Ranger, a petroglyph which seems to be a Native American’s rock-hewn portrait of a new arrival to Nevada, is found in the 48,438-acre Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area south of Las Vegas. The site is made up of some 500 rock art panels with approximately 1,700 individual images. During a hike into the canyon the visitor may spot rock art spanning perhaps a 2000 year period. Hike deeper into the canyon and the rock art becomes more modern, culminating at the end of the canyon with depictions of the cowboy and his mount.
