Blythe Intaglios

These rare geoglyphs were carved into the desert pavement along the Colorado River a mere twenty minutes from what is now the city of Blythe, California.  They’re estimated to be at least several hundred years old, and are still visible, although nearly all of them have been damaged by off-road vehicles, vandals, and even folks trying to “restore” them.

Please think before you drive across the open desert, or disturb centuries-old pavement.  Those tracks you leave could last much longer than you do.
