The oldest petroglyphs in North America found yet are near Pyramid Lake, Nevada and are just stunning!! Pyramid Lake is a remnant & deepest part on
ancient Lake Lahontan which covered most of northwestern Nevada at the end of the last ice age. Petroglyphs are dating between 10,500 & 14,800 years
Sure would liked to have seen the area in those days, it's one of the most barren deserts now.
I hope the site is on the reservation, as it would be well protected, they take their sovereignty very seriously, and any non tribe memeber on their
land without a permit will be arrested.
On the subject of lake lohantan, I've got a paper detailing fish remains found in a midden at a pre Clovis site, the Witt site, near the intersection
of CA hwy 41 and interstate 5 in Fresno county. There is evidence that the san Joaquin/ Sacramento river system was connected to the snake river via
the feather river, that's that western mozt portion of lake lohantan. The researcher found a species of fish in the southern san Joaquin that is only
found in one other place , the snake river.
The Witt site was occupied at the same time as these rock carvings were made.
